Building a shared future for all forms of life

Biodiversity is the pounding heart of the planet and is a major issue because of the various roles and services it provides (diversified genetic resources, ecological services and the self-regulating capacity of the ecosystems). It is also a key element that plays a crucial role in food security, in reducing poverty and in achieving the 17 Goals of the United Nations 2030 agenda through i) the Environment, ii) the Society and iii) the Economy; the three main components of Sustainable Development.
