Impact of COVID-19

Climate change affects more than just the weather. It touches our food supply, water supply, ocean life, and the health of each of our bodies. We must address the health of our planet to meet the goals of sustainable development.

Covid-19 may result in a 6% drop in greenhouse gas emissions for 2020. However, this still short of the 7.6% annual production required to limit global warming. *

'Covid-19 is not only a wake-up call, it is a dress rehearsal for the world of changes to come… The pandemic has taught us that our choices matter. As we look to the future, let us make sure we choose wisely.' – Antonio Guterres
