  1. Sustaining earth for the future The Thoothukudi fables Sustaining earth for the future S. UBHODEEP


  2. Context: India is in need of a massive new effort to catalogue, map and monitor all life forms, we must do more to safeguard biodiversity and the ecosystem services that support all human endeavours Life is a unique asset of our planet countless ecosystems spread across our vast lands, rivers and oceans. Rich fabric of biodiversity + vibrant and colourful tapestry of peoples, cultures and traditions UBHODEEP


  3. EDITORIAL DISCUSSION gth June THE HINDU unacademy


  4. This unique bio-cultural tapestry has been resilient to change for centuries But with the unleashing of unprecedented economic and environmental forces, it is now subject to increasing wear and tear. Ultimately, in the process - destroy our tapestry of life, cultures and traditions- and, ourselves UBHODEEP


  5. Facts: Biologists all over the world - documenting the ongoing loss of life forms. Modern extinction rates are more than a thousand times greater than the rates of the geological past. Recent decades, populations of more than 40% of large mammals have declined and insect biomass has decreased by more than 75%. Natural habitats all over the world have shrunk. For these losses, our country ranks higher than most UBHODEEP


  6. Anthropocene era - a new period in earth's history, when humans have begun to impact our environment at the global scale. Forests degrade and diminish, Our rivers vanish, Our air become unfit to breathe We constantly talk about cleaning up the Ganga, as if it were the sole wound, but we overlook that the whole tapestry covering our body is slowly disintegrating. All life requires nurturing. UBHODEEP


  7. American biologist E.O. Wilson has described an ambitious project he calls Half-Earth" (To protect life on earth). Calls for formally protecting 50% of the earth's land surface in order to conserve our rapidly disappearing natural heritage Not compromise the rights of indigenous people. in the past - conservation efforts have often disregarded issues of social justice and equity UBHODEEP


  8. Need: India's forest policy calls for forests to cover almost a third of the country, and if we include other natural systems such as grasslands and wetlands, the area to be protected could amount to almost 40%. Some areas could be fully protected while others might be managed by stakeholders for sustainable use and enrichment of biodiversity. -current efforts to map India's biodiversity are largely restricted to forestlands, while plans for species monitoring are even more inadequate. Digital tools and artificial intelligence today to efficiently catalogue, map, and monitor life's fabric - engagement of millions of students and citizens UBHODEEP


  9. This mapping effort would include not only all life, including cultures,_ethnicities, and dialects, but also the use of biodiversity and its vulnerability to changes in land use and climate. glimpse of what we have, and what is most vulnerable We still have only the most basic understanding of how society interacts with biodiversity, and how economic, social and political forces can erode the biodiversity that ultimately sustains us. Mapping: clue - natural services underpin our agricultural productivity and mitigate climate change. UBHODEEP


  10. Our academic institutions, the 'Life Sciences' are still restricted largely to the study of cells and molecules sadly misrepresent a vast area of inquiry vital to humanity's survival We also need a comprehensive inquiry into how our society is shaping as well as responding to changes in biodiversity. India has not been, but must be, at the forefront of this emerging science, because nowhere on Earth are natural and human systems tied together more inextricably than on the subcontinent. UBHODEEP
