Biodiversity Year 2010 ? Urgent action needed…

No one can deny the global climate change has wiping out our precious biodiversity in an alarming rate. In recent years, several alternative models for international environmental justice and governance have been suggested. One possible reform at the national level would be quite fruitful for developing countries to set up a single body to deal with their obligations under all international environmental agreements.

The COP-15 at Denmark was felt overambitious and blank with regards to the implementation so hope the COP-16 which is aimed to organize in 2010 at Mexico will perform the action that COP-15 had failed towards the environmental justice and equitable society. And for instance, countries that are drawing up plans to deal with climate-induced disasters could identify not just vulnerable human settlements, but also the local ecosystems on which they depend to conserve the biodiversity. An important element of this highly integrated approach is that it would protect ecosystems not just as economic mainstays of local peoples, but also as a heaven of Biodiversity.
