BIOFIN The Biodiversity Finance Initiative WORKBOOK 2018

February 2, 2021

Biodiversity is “nature” – life on Earth. Biodiversity includes living organisms and ecosystems that underpin human well-being and economies by providing the essentials to a healthy and productive human life, like clean air, food security and fresh water. Investments in biodiversity are investments in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), contributing directly to poverty reduction, resilience and long-term economic growth and sustainability. Nearly half of all human beings are directly dependent on natural resources for their livelihood. Many of the most vulnerable people depend directly on biodiversity to fulfil their daily subsistence needs. By preserving biodiversity and ecosystems, we are retaining the ability of the planet to sustain our prosperity.
