World fails to meet 20 global conservation targets to protect nature by 2020 | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Ahead of finalising new goals to protect biodiversity in next 10 years (2021-30), the UN Convention on Biological Diversity on Tuesday released its fifth Global Biodiversity Outlook report showing how none of the 20 agreed conservation targets of the past 10 years could be fully met by the word - a case which will further complicate the global biodiversity crisis. Experts believe that such crisis may push the world towards more disasters like Covid-19 pandemic, a zoonotic disease transmitted between animals and humans, massive wildfires and water crisis if the countries don't accept the growing scientific consensus over an ambitious new target of protecting at least 30% of the planet by 2030 – popularly known as 30x30 target – under the UN Convention.

Pakistani court issues arrest warrant for former PM Sharif – Times of India

ISLAMABAD: A top court in Pakistan on Tuesday issued an arrest warrant for the country's ailing former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif after he failed to return home to appear before judges to face corruption charges.

Under Pakistan's legal system, the government can now seek Sharif's extradition from Britain. Sharif has been in London since authorities last November released him on bail so he could travel and seek medical treatment abroad. At the time, the High Court in the eastern city of Lahore permitted Sharif to leave the country for four weeks, with the option to extend the tim...
