Without biodiversity, there is no future for humanity,” Biodiversity is the biological variety and variability of life on Earth. Biodiversity underpins the health of the planet and has a direct impact on all our lives, its loss can destabilize ecosystems, promote outbreaks of infectious diseases, and undermine development progress, nutrition security and protection from natural disasters. Reduced biodiversity means millions of people face a future where food supplies are more vulnerable to pests and disease, and where fresh water is in irregular or short supply. Biodiversity loss can be indicated by some of these factors which include a decline in plant production, Lowered resistance to environmental perturbations; like drought and Increased variability in certain ecosystem processes, e.g. plant productivity, water use.  Healthy ecosystems are an essential cause they provide us with many essentials we take for granted, Plants convert energy from the sun making it available to other life forms. Bacteria and other living organisms break down organic matter into nutrients providing plants with healthy soil to grow in. Pollinators are essential in plant reproduction guaranteeing our food production and Plants and act as major carbon sinks. In short, biodiversity provides us with clean air, fresh water, and good quality soil and crop pollination. It helps us fight climate change and adapt to it as well reduce the impact of natural hazards. Since living organisms interact in dynamic ecosystems, the disappearance of one species can have a far-reaching impact on the food chain. It is impossible to know exactly what the consequences of mass extinctions would be for humans, but we do know that for now the diversity of nature allows us to thrive.
Climate change has been acknowledged to be a global problem calling for a
Global solution. The adverse effects to the environment that result from
Greenhouse gases especially CO2 being concentrated in the atmosphere have
Begun to become a reality to human beings thus prompting for actions to combat those gases. ICLEI (2010) affirms that not only is global climate interconnected with biodiversity loss but that mitigation of climate change is directly dependent on biodiversity management.
