Failure to create equitable sharing of the benefits and costs of biodiversity conservation

Conservation of biological resources faces an inequitable distribution of benefits and costs, with benefits primarily accruing at the national and international levels and costs accruing at the local level. The funding gap and inequitable distribution of benefits and costs are due to a complex array of government and market failures. These lead to the inability of economic conservation strategies to pay for themselves and thus lead ultimately to the loss of biological resources.
