Transcript

  • 1. The Millennium Development Goals Ensure Environmental Sustainability
  • 2. 7.A Integrate the principles of sustainable development into country policies and programmes and reverse the loss of environmental resources.
  • 3. Target 1 • Forests are a safety net for the poor, but they continue to disappear at an alarming rate. • Of all developing regions, South America and Africa saw the largest net losses of forest areas between 2000 and 2010. • Global emissions of carbon dioxide have increased by more than 46% since 1990. • In the 25 years since the adoption of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, there has been a reduction of over 98% in the consumption of ozone depleting substances.
  • 4. 7.B Reduce biodiversity loss, achieving by 2010, a significant reduction in the rate of loss
  • 5. Target 2 • More areas of the earth’s surface are protected. Since 1990, protected areas have increased in number by 58%. • Growth in protected areas varies across countries and territories and not all protected areas cover key biodiversity sites. • By 2010, protected areas covered 12.7% of the world’s land area but only 1.6% of total ocean area.
  • 6. 7.C Halve by 2015, the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation
  • 7. Target 3 • The world has met the target of halving the proportion of people without access to improved sources of water, five years ahead of schedule. • Between 1990 and 2010, more than 2 billion people gained access to improved drinking water sources. • The proportion of people using an improved water source rose from 76% in 1990 to 89% in in 2010. • Over 40% of all people without improved drinking water live in Sub-Saharan Africa. • In 2011, 768 million people remained without access to an improved source of drinking water.
  • 8. 7.D Achieve by 2020, a significant improvement in the lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers
  • 9. Target 4 • The target was met well in advance of the 2020 deadline. • The share of urban slum residents in the developing world declined from 39% in 2000 to 33% in 2012. more than 200 million of these people gained access to improved water sources, improved sanitation facilities, or durable or less crowded housing, therefore exceeding the MDG target. • 862 million people are estimated to be living in slums in 2012 compared to 650 million in 1990 and 760 million in 2000
