Publication of the 'Living Planet Report' by the WWF

17 October 2022

Last Thursday, the WWF published its Living Planet Report, a comprehensive study measuring measures the state of biodiversity in the world. The report is alarming: between 1970 and 2018, in 48 years, vertebrate populations - fish, birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles - have fallen by an average of 69% worldwide. A figure that only increases from report to report.

Five major causes are identified at the origin of this decline:

  • Land use change
  • Overexploitation of resources
  • Pollution
  • Invasive species and the one that becomes more threatening year after year
  • And global warming

According to this report, if we do not manage to respect the Paris Agreements (i.e. limiting global warming to 1.5° C by 2050), "climate change will surely become the main cause of biodiversity loss in the coming decades"

This is why, in the upcoming the COP 15: UN Biodiversity Conference in Montreal in December, WWF will call on governments to adopt an ambitious global agreement to save wildlife.
