The Paris Agreement provides a science-based target for industry, societies, and humanity at large regarding climate change. We lack, however, science-based targets for many other dimensions of the Earth system, which means that we are allowing technological innovations and economic growth to evolve without adequate guidance. The challenge is to assess and quantify biophysical dimensions for a stable Earth system and to formulate them into actionable targets for a multitude of actors, both public and private, for all dimensions of the Earth system, such as biodiversity, land degradation, nitrogen and phosphorous. This round table aims to reinforce the important role of science-based targets as a key tool for maintaining a stable Earth system that actively taps the potential of the private sector.

Science Based Targets for Earth - Roundtable GEF Assembly
 The global commons – the ecosystems, biomes and processes that regulate the stability and resilience of the Earth system – are the foundation of the global economy and modern society, and they have been for the last ten thousand years. Decades of degradation have resulted in our ocean, air and land systems approaching irreversible tipping points, creating extreme unpredictability and undermining the prospect for achieving the 2030 sustainable development goals.
