  • A new scientific blueprint for tackling climate change, pollution and the accelerating loss of plant and animal species published on Thursday shows how to end the world’s “suicidal” war on nature.
  • The United Nations Environment Programme report builds on the findings of previous global studies to help governments, businesses and other actors adopt a more joined-up approach to tackling interlocking environmental crises.
  • It aims to encourage governments to take more ambitious steps at a UN climate conference in Glasgow in November and during parallel talks to agree a new global pact on preserving biodiversity.
