Deputy Secretary-General's remarks at the Leadership Dialogue of the United Nations Environment Assembly: Strengthening Actions for Nature to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals [as delivered]

Excellencies, Distinguished delegates,
 I am delighted to have the opportunity to join this Leadership Dialogue to discuss how to unleash the potential of nature for the Sustainable Development Goals.
Nature is essential to the achievement of all Sustainable Development Goals – from food security to economic growth, to conflict prevention and health, to climate change.
Over half a billion people in the world depend on coral reefs for food, income, and protection.
