Launch of WHO overview report on nature, biodiversity and health

The global environment is changing, and these changes have profound and negative impacts on nature – from a worldwide reduction in biodiversity and destruction of natural habitats to humans’ use of about half of the planet’s liveable surface to feed and provide resources for themselves. To mark the International Day for Biological Diversity, WHO Regional Office for Europe will launch an overview report describing nature’s relevance to human well-being, and how depletion of natural resources can turn into threats for human health.
This will be followed by a moderated question and answer session with experts on the need to prevent and reduce human impacts on nature.
