Governments Subsidize Destruction Of Nature As They Promise To Protect It

"When dignitaries from 196 countries converge in Montreal next week to rub shoulders and hash out a new global agreement to save nature, money will be on the agenda.

Hundreds of billions of dollars more are needed each year to reverse biodiversity loss — to restore forests and grasslands, establish protected areas, build monitoring programs and transition to more sustainable agriculture.

But it’s not just a question of ramping up investment in biodiversity conservation. Governments also need to stop subsidizing its destruction."
