Late last year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report informing the world that there were only 12 years remaining to make the changes necessary in order to avoid the most severe effects of climate change.
A few months later in May, the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services issued a wake-up call to the world with a report highlighting the widespread damage humanity has inflicted to nature across every continent, and the effects this will have to the global economy.
