Continued biodiversity loss threatens to undermine development gains, including in health, resilience to climate change, food and nutritional security, and national earnings.
Biodiversity conservation, climate change and economic development must be tackled together by the institutions that drive policy, rules, plans, investment and action.
We aim to ensure this happens through research, engaging directly with international policy processes, and capacity building and partnerships with key organisations, communities and other actors.
