  • Countries are set to miss all of the targets they set themselves a decade ago to preserve nature and save Earth’s vital biodiversity, the United Nations said Tuesday.
  • The 20 objectives range from phasing out fossil fuel subsidies and limiting habitat loss to protecting fish stocks.
  • Ahead of the UN General Assembly and a crucial year of diplomacy for nature and the climate, the assessment found none of the biodiversity targets would be fully met, “undermining efforts to address climate change”.
