Biodiversity and resilient ecosystems are essential to sustainable development, especially when it comes to issues such as food and nutrition security, access to health and water, good governance and peacebuilding.
Maintaining biodiversity and ecosystems services is crucial to reduce poverty as well as the risks of natural disasters. We therefore act at all levels to help fight unsustainable practices that are threatening biodiversity and ecosystems around the world.
Our action in that field is in line with the Sustainable Development Goal 15 and the UN Convention on Biological Diversity.
