life-sustaining natural environments was likely to deepen
to the point of being irreversible after global
targets to cut the decline by this year were missed.
As a result of the degradation, the world is moving
closer to several "tipping points" beyond which some ecosystems
that play a part in natural processes such as
climate or the food chain may be permanently damaged, a UN report said.
The third "Global Biodiversity Outlook" found
that deforestation, pollution or overexploitation were damaging the
productive capacity of the most vulnerable environments,
including the Amazon rainforest, lakes and coral reefs.
"This report is saying that we are reaching the
tipping point where the irreversible damage to the planet is going to be
done unless we act urgently," Ahmed Djoghlaf,
