ЮНЕП, ЕЭК ООН

Данный шестой Доклад об оценке «Глобальная экологическая перспектива» (ГЭП-6) по панъевропейскому региону рисует полную картину экологических факторов, влияющих на здоровье и благополучие человека на уровне рассматриваемого региона. Опираясь на большой объем новых достоверных научных доказательств, региональные консультации и надежный межправительственный процесс, настоящий доклад показывает, что реализация региональных и глобальных многосторонних природоохранных соглашений позволила улучшить экологическую обстановку в панъевропейском регионе. В документе также подчеркивается сложность взаимосвязанных экологических, социальных и экономических задач, стоящих перед лицами, принимающими решения.

Supporting human well-being through healthy and productivee ecosystems
United Nations Environment Programme

Humans depend on healthy and productive ecosystems to meet their basic needs, but many people’s needs are not being met sustainability – If at all. An estimated 795 million people suffer from hunger and 1.2 billion live in water-stressed areas. At the same time, biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation are expected to continue, or even accelerate. The demand for ecosystem goods and services is predicted to further increase: By 2030, the world will require 40% more timber and fibre.

Unlocking the sustainable potential of land resources: Evaluating systems, strategies and tools: Factsheet
United Nations Environment Programme

Better matching of land use with its sustainable potential is a “no-regrets” strategy for sustainably increasing agricultural production on existing land, targeting restoration efforts to where they are likely to be most successful, and guiding biodiversity conservation initiatives. Land potential is defined as the inherent, long-term potential of the land to sustainably generate ecosystem services. This report provides an introduction to land potential evaluation systems, strategies and tools necessary to implement this strategy. It provides information that both private landowners and policymakers can use to increase long-term productivity and profitability, while at the same time addressing global objectives defined through land-related Sustainable Development Goals, and particularly 15.3 (land degradation neutrality).
