Nature loss: Insatiable greed degrading land around the world - UN - "Human activities are damaging and degrading the lands of the Earth in an unsustainable fashion according to a new UN report."

  • Just 1% of farms control 70% of the world's agricultural land, while 80% of all farms are under 2 hectares.
  • Around $700bn is paid in agricultural subsidies each year but only around 15% has a positive impact on natural capital or biodiversity.
  • At least 70% of the clearing of forested areas for agriculture between 2013 and 2019 was done in violation of national laws.
