A key issue that is still missing is a clear understanding of how climate change and biodiversity relate to a third global emergency: conflict. Conflict is typically associated with destruction, displacement and human suffering. And when it comes to climate change, people usually think of CO2 and melting ice caps. But the planetary emergency affects us all, and 20 per cent of the planet's countries are in conflict. We can no longer view conflict and the planetary emergency as separate threats with separate policy responses.
