The group of G7 countries currently meeting in the United Kingdom are set to agree on a plan to end reliance on fuel and diesel-powered cars by 2030.
This is part of a comprehensive Green Belt and Road Initiative aimed at providing developing countries with billions of dollars in aids and investments required to curb carbon emissions. It is also seen as an alternative to China’s belt and road initiative which China has promoted in Africa and developing economies globally.
According to a report published by the British Government, the G7 nations want to consent to a “nature Compact” that will “halt and reverse: biodiversity loss by 2030. The plan includes conserving or protecting 30% of more of land and ocean respectively globally by the end of 2030.
“The G7 will endorse a Nature Compact at this afternoon’s meeting to halt and reverse biodiversity loss by 2030 – including supporting the global target to conserve or protect at least 30 percent of land and 30 percent of ocean globally by the end of the decade.”
