The Governance of Nature and the Nature of Governance: Policy that works for biodiversity and livelihoods
This report examines the governance of biodiversity - how it is managed and how decisions about it are made - at local, national and international level. It reviews experience with community-based conservation, mainstreaming biodiversity, and the Biodiversity Convention process, and includes case studies from India, Peru and Tanzania. It also recommends ways to improve the governance of biodiversity to deliver more benefits to people and planet.
Community-based initiatives for biodiversity and poverty reduction, where biodiversity is sustainably managed by communities for nutrition, health, cultural and other needs, receive little official support and recognition. Their wider adoption is often hampered by unsupportive policy environments.
