"The world is at a critical turning point. If we are to reverse the alarming decline in nature, we must respond with urgency and coordinated action. These efforts are needed to ensure the survival of our ecosystems, and for the sake of our shared future and prosperity."
- ADB President Masatsugu Asakawa
