RichesOfNature.com is a part of the 17Goals1Future movement which supports the United Nations sustainable development goals.
RichesOfNature.com supports the fifteenth sustainable development goal: sustainable management of forests, combating desertification, reversing land degradation and stopping biodiversity loss. Forests cover 30.7 per cent of the Earth’s surface and, in addition to providing food security and shelter, they are key to combating climate change, protecting biodiversity and the homes of the indigenous population. By protecting forests, we will also be able to strengthen natural resource management and increase land productivity.
At the current time, thirteen million hectares of forests are being lost every year while the persistent degradation of drylands has led to the desertification of 3.6 billion hectares. Even though up to 15% of land is currently under protection, biodiversity is still at risk. Deforestation and desertification – caused by human activities and climate change – pose major challenges to sustainable development and have affected the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in the fight against poverty.
17Goals1Future community strives to create a better world for everyone. It acknowledges that we must all work together to create a better future and gives a framework for individuals and businesses to get involved and help solve the challenges of our time.
