Governance approaches and practices in Latin America and the Caribbean for transformative change for biodiversity
MetadataShow full item record
The relevance of biodiversity to global climate, health and social stability has been widely documented; its present state of deterioration and loss is an urgent call to change the way in which we live with species and ecosystems. This leads to a recognition of the importance of reformulating the institutions and various processes associated with biodiversity governance at the subnational, national and global levels that have a negative impact on its conservation and sustainable use. In other words, there is a need to design and implement new forms of governance that facilitate positive transformative changes in the state of the biodiversity and human groups in Socioecologically vulnerable positions.
