Biodiversity: Finance and the Economic and Business Case for Action
This report, Biodiversity: Finance and the Economic and Business Case for Action, provides an important and timely contribution to the CBD COP15. It was prepared as input to the G7 Meeting of Environment Ministers held on 5-6 May 2019, at the request of the French G7 Presidency. The report provides evidence-based analysis on the economic and business case for biodiversity action. It presents a preliminary assessment of finance flows for biodiversity, and discusses the data and indicator gaps that need to be addressed to more effectively monitor the pressures on biodiversity and the actions taken to address them. The report also identifies ten priority action areas where G7 and other governments can focus their efforts to halt and reverse global biodiversity loss.
