Financing emergency actions for biodiversity conservation

While a great deal of attention is focused on the need to develop new economic approaches to sustainable use in biodiversity conservation, the fact cannot be escaped that before the world can move to a more balanced ecological and economic relationship with the environment, a state of emergency exists in most areas of biodiversity conservation, requiring immediate - and non profitable - investment of large scale finance.

Financing emergency actions can include: acquisition or renting of representative and unknown ecosystems; restoration and management of natural environments; increased research, inventories and training; and compensations to eligible parties for losses.
