The world is suffering from a serious ecological crisis, according to a new report from a UN environmental group.
The report, which is being released by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), highlights the increasing concentration of pollutants in the environment and the impact of climate change on biodiversity.
“The impact of human activities on the environment is well documented,” said IFAW chief executive and co-founder, Peter Gleick.
In a statement, Gleick said the IFAw has been working on an initiative called Greening the Planet since 2005.
Greening the planet is a global network of 350 NGOs working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, protect the environment, and ensure the sustainable development of the world’s natural resources.
Since its launch in 2005, the project has helped 350,000 people around the world.
Since 2010, more than 2.6 million people have signed up to the Greeningtheplanet.org website, which tracks progress and encourages people to donate money to help mitigate global warming.
“We are seeing unprecedented numbers of people in Africa and Southeast Asia giving their money directly to these 350, 000 Greening The Planet organizations,” Gleick told the BBC.
“They are the only ones that have the funding to go to the effort.”
Gleick said while there has been progress, many people still feel the need to give money.
He said the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and other global environmental NGOs have made progress in reducing carbon emissions, but the number of donors is still a big problem.
Gleack said the vast majority of the donations from the developing world are being used to finance oil and gas projects and to finance the development of fossil fuels.
“It is a matter of public policy that we can have the most ambitious climate policy and it should be a global public policy,” Gleack said.
This is the first time in my career I’ve been involved with an environmental charity, he added.
“There are more of us than ever before.
We have an unprecedented capacity to make this world a better place.”
I’m very optimistic, but I think it’s very hard to say we’re doing a great job at the moment.
“The IFA, which has been helping countries like Cambodia, Vietnam and China to reduce pollution, said the number and quality of the people donating money is critical to making a meaningful difference.
The report also calls for a stronger focus on environmental issues by governments.
A major environmental threat, global warming has already led to a number of human deaths due to the extreme weather events that have occurred since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, such as droughts, floods and droughty soil.
Scientists predict the planet will experience more extreme weather and more extreme events as a result of global warming, which means more people will be affected by the effects.
Climate change has already made it harder for people in low-income countries like Bangladesh and the Philippines to grow their own food and other essentials.
There are currently 1.5 billion people living in poverty in the world, which was defined as living on less than $2 a day for a family of four.
More than 30 per cent of the planet’s people live in extreme poverty, according the United Nations.
Currently, the United States and China have the largest share of people living on $2-a-day in poverty.
The UK is second, with 12 per cent.
