“Biodiversity is an important cross-cutting issue in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
Biodiversity is the foundation for life and for the essential services provided by ecosystems. It therefore underpins peoples’ livelihoods and sustainable development in all areas of activity, including economic sectors such as agriculture, forestry, fisheries and tourism, among others. By halting biodiversity loss, we are investing in people, their lives and their well-being.
