Integrating biodiversity conservation with rural development

Description:
The interaction of sustainable agriculture and rural development, with the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and the need for integrated land-use planning as mentioned in Agenda 21.
Context:
Particular attention should be given to rural areas where, in many cases, the continuation of agricultural activities is necessary to avoid losses of biodiversity and habitat degradation. A rural development policy with biodiversity components has the potential to protect and enhance these environmental assets. By encouraging land conservation and higher environmental standards of land use, agri-environmental measures form an essential instrument for the sustainable development of land use, enabling conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
