SDG Policy Brief: Biodiversity Conservation

9 Jul, 2016
Posted in biodiversity, Resources and publications, Sustainable Development

Global biodiversity loss is a key threat to food security, human health, and the sustainable development agenda in general. Biodiversity loss reduces the biosphere’s resilience as biotic components or assemblages of life forms lose components and therefore lose production and cycling capacity, including water and carbon cycling. The effective mainstreaming of biodiversity in sustainable development policy, and the full and effective implementation of SDGs 14 and 15 and the Aichi targets of the Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) is essential in this respect.
