2012 Theme: Nature + Life

Valuing and conserving nature

Biological diversity is essential for human well‐being—it provides food security, human health, clean air and water. Biodiversity contributes directly to local livelihoods and economic development. We need to do better at proving that conserving biodiversity is not a sacrifice, but an opportunity that brings many benefits. The value of nature is irreplaceable and essential to human wellbeing.
