Peoples' response to the High Level Summit on Biodiversity

139 organizations, networks and groups from around the world have signed a letter raising critical points about the upcoming UN summit, the biodiversity crisis and the Convention on Biological Diversity.

¨We’ve tried all the market-based and voluntary approaches since Rio and the evidence of failure is piling up. Now is the time for strong public investment which can be generated through redistribution of wealth by time-tested means – taxes and payments for ecological debts. We cannot  afford to repeat past mistakes¨

The letter is available in English, Español, Français, Japanese
