Creating structural adjustments for biodiversity conservation
Improving regulatory environment for business involvement in biodiversity conservation Creating legal environment for business involvement in the conservation of biological resources Providing enabling conditions for business involvement in biodiversity conservation
There is a need to consider targeted structural reforms of national systems of public and private finance, and the legal frameworks of countries with biological resource bases in order to stimulate business involvement in biodiversity conservation and produce new innovative private sector conservation schemes. At the same time as direct financial incentive schemes for business involvement there needs to be a broader framework of enabling conditions created which include: public awareness, clearer definition of property rights, strengthening of the legal system, and reform of fiscal policies such as taxes and subsidies.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
