The Prince of Wales, heir to the British throne, has founded an international project against ecological disaster, the International Sustainability Unit.

Prince Charles has long been involved in environmental issues and warned last year that there were less than 100 months left to avoid irreversible damage due to climate change.

The unit aims to address the depletion of the world’s natural capital by helping to create a consensus as to the best ways to enhance long-term food, water and energy security.

Besides climate change, other environmental issues close to the Prince’s heart include rainforest conservation, stopping overfishing, the preservation of ecosystems and promoting sustainable agriculture.
