Description

The management of biodiversity and ecosystems and their contributions to people well-being and the global economy is not just an environment issue but an overarching and cross-cutting issue for sustainability, resilience and building back better in the context of unseen impacts of the Covid-19 crisis. The situation is felt by most global and national institutions and many influential individuals as a call to link human development and planet preservation in a more practical and efficient manner, through long-term approaches to development finance and public budgeting that take better account of environmental imperatives and the preservation of the ecosystem base of all human livelihoods.
