Anglo American Nature Positive Grant 2021
Due date: 31 July 2021, 23:59 Central African Time
Since 2020, the concept of a Nature Positive future has been gaining rapid traction amongst business and civil society and being promoted to governments. Collaborative partnerships of conservation nonprofit organisations (NPOs), United Nations organisations and businesses are motivating for the Global Goal for Nature: Nature Positive by 2030 to be adopted internationally at the upcoming Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD CoP15) in October 2021.
Adopting a nature positive approach means halting and reversing nature loss measured from a baseline of 2020, through increasing the health, abundance, diversity and resilience of species, populations and ecosystems so that by 2030 nature is visibly and measurably on the path of recovery.
By 2050, nature must recover so that thriving ecosystems and nature-based solutions continue to support future generations, the diversity of life and play a critical role in halting runaway climate change.
This is achieved by retaining and restoring natural ecosystems and halting the decline of biodiversity, transitioning towards a nature-positive economy reflecting the real costs and benefits of nature and reducing production and consumption footprints, ensuring a healthy environment for healthy societies through the use of nature-based solutions that conserve and sustainably use biodiversity to meet society’s needs and recognise and support the rights and stewardship of indigenous people and local communities in biodiversity conservation and decision-making.
Anglo American is taking a leadership role in delivering a Nature Positive future in line with the Global Goal for Nature. Achieving positive impact, demonstrating and sharing outcomes in the wider landscape/seascape, countries and regions in which we operate, are fundamental to our way of working.
