Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - RIYADH — The G20 environment ministers on Wednesday met to strengthen policy cooperation toward the reduction of land degradation and habitat loss, and the conservation of coral reefs to safeguard the planet’s ecosystems and biodiversity.

Stressing the importance of preserving the environment and building a more sustainable future, the G20 members discussed issues related to the conservation of the earth’s environment including land, oceans, and natural resources. They addressed protecting marine and terrestrial environments and working towards reducing marine pollution, especially marine plastic littering.

Coral reefs are some of the most diverse and valuable ecosystems on Earth but are under threat from pollution, disease, and habitat destruction. The ministers examined how best to conserve our coral reefs and ocean ecosystems to ensure the protection of a habitat that 25-50% of marine life depends on and helps protect communities from flooding.
