Head of UN environment program: ‘We need to fundamentally change our systems’

As the planet faces a triple crisis of climate change, pollution and biodiversity loss, Inger Andersen, Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), tells Jowhar that it is time for another acceleration in recovery of ecosystems.

Leading up to World Environment Day on June 5, the UN agency is warning that humanity is using about 1.6 times the amount of resources the planet can sustainably supply. However, Andersen says nature will “bounce back” if given half the chance.

Inger Andersen was a guest speaker from INSEAD’s Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society at the Change NOW summit.
