PLANET4B project

Better decisions for biodiversity and people

We rely on biodiversity for our very existence – it provides us with the basic ecosystem services that allow us to survive and thrive. Yet human lives and the biosphere itself are under threat due to the loss of biodiversity occurring at a massive scale, and at an accelerating pace. Despite the mounting scientific evidence on the importance of biodiversity, it still takes a back seat to political and other agendas. How can we change this alarming situation? How can we make better decisions for biodiversity and people on individual and institutional level?
