We have a duty to preserve what we have, to restore what we have lost and to look at what we need in harmony with nature, he said in a statement.

The Earth Fund, set up by technology giant Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, has pledged $ 2 billion to fight climate change by rebuilding and transforming agricultural systems.

“Our commitment supports a triple imperative – we have a duty to preserve what we have, to regain what we have lost and to look at what we need in harmony with nature,” Bezos said in a statement.

The $ 2 billion initiative announced at the Glasgow Climate Conference is part of a promise made earlier this year by Bezos to provide $ 10 billion by 2030 to combat climate change.

The Bezos Earth Fund plans to use $ 1 billion mainly in the United States and Africa to plant trees that will protect the earth from erosion and to rehabilitate areas with high levels of carbon dioxide.

The second billion will be used to transform agricultural systems so as to increase yields, reduce food waste and waste, and promote plant-based nutrition.
