Sustainable Development and Economic Empowerment

Every day, people around the world depend on rich and varied ecosystems for their livelihoods, health and well-being. Biodiversity is a key crosscutting issue affecting development, enshrined in the 2030 Agenda. Yet ecosystems are increasingly at risk, and responsibility for protecting them must be embedded in all sectors. Where biodiversity is being exploited, the benefits must be shared in an equitable way.

IDLO has been working to build capacity for legal reform and develop tools to embed biodiversity considerations into policies and decision-making processes at national and local levels.
