In the last nearly two years, the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted normal lives. The impact has been dangerous and far-reaching. The relationship between human systems and natural systems has been badly hit. Ecosystem degradation is already affecting the well-being of at least 3.2 billion people - 40% of the world's population, according to a UN study. The World Environment Day 2021 campaign - "Recreate, Reimagine, Restore" - focuses on reversing the degradation of our ecosystems.
