The 15th Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP15) will be held in Kunming, Yunnan Province, China
For many millions of years, humans and nature have been inextricably intertwined. In prehistoric civilizations, human survival was completely reliant on the whims of nature, which endowed both fear and respect. With the birth of agricultural civilizations, humans began to alter nature to better use its resources, but with a sustainable and eco-traditional approach. After entering the industrial revolution, however, dramatic increases in population and commodity demand, as well as rapid development of technology to exploit nature, led to a series of environmental crises, which not only threaten nature but the very survival of humans themselves.
