Biodiversity-related opportunities for sustainable development in mountains
Developing effective valuation, policy, governance, and management approaches to safeguard the biodiversity underpinning human well-being in mountains and achieve international sustainable development goals requires a common understanding of the interactions between nature and people that are particular to mountains.
This working group supports inter- and transdisciplinary science in two main areas. The first is the nexus between biodiversity, ecosystem functions and services, and human well-being in the world’s mountains. The second is the importance of biodiversity in achieving the Aichi Biodiversity Targets of the Convention for Biological Diversity and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in mountains.
