Why is a Green Recovery needed?
Despite its stunning landscapes and beautiful scenery Wales is one of the most nature depleted countries in the world. The State of Nature 2019 reports that one in six species in Wales are threatened with extinction and the State of Natural Resources Report concludes that none of our ecosystems are resilient. World leading economists are telling us that a Green Recovery will deliver greater economic benefits and provide a healthier, fairer society. But this won’t happen unless we restore nature and the ecosystems nature creates and on which we all depend.
What actions are needed for a Green Recovery?
There is clear evidence that if we make the right decisions now, we can recover better and build the equitable, climate-safe, nature-rich, healthy Wales that we all want and need. RSPB Cymru is proposing a five-step pathway to this sustainable future, which would ensure Wales leads the world in implementing a positive economic, societal and environmental recovery. Taking these bold steps will reduce our exposure to the risks of ecological and environmental breakdown and help underpin a resilient society and a vibrant, nature-rich economy for this and future generations.
The five steps to a Green Recovery:
Let’s invest in nature for the benefit of us all. Let’s invest in a Green Recovery.
We spend 90% of net income on conservation, public education and advocacy
