We live in extraordinary times. The vast global crisis of sustainability manifests itself on multiple frontiers. For the first time in human history, we are at risk of crossing multiple planetary boundaries related to Earth system processes critical to our future survival. The recent global assessment of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services estimates that more than 1 million species are at risk of extinction, threatening the safety nets that protect the livelihoods and food security of millions of people across the world. Effects of global warming by more than 1°C are increasingly making their consequences felt in a wide range of natural disasters. The severity of these impacts is bound to accelerate in the coming years.
