Ensure Environmental Sustainability

Greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, and remind us of the urgency of the climate change problem.

  • Global CO2 emissions (billions of metric tons): Year 1990: 21.9; Year 2006: 28.7
  • Much needed action in reducing number of species under threat of extinction and fish species under duress.
  • Focus needed to avert global water crisis, through more efficient use of water resources, especially in agriculture.
