Why ESG Matters

Biodiversity is all the different kinds of life you’ll find in one area and how they interact with the ecosystem - the variety of animals, plants, fungi, and even microorganisms like bacteria that make up our natural world.

Biodiversity and health

The decline in biodiversity is having an ever-greater impact on human health and well-being services, with linkages to disaster risks, diseases, nutrition, medicine, air and water quality being increasingly recognised.

In this edition, we explore how decreasing levels of biodiversity are negatively affecting human health outcomes and examine the support provided by the Convention on Biological Diversity and its various Parties in restoring balance.
