2012 Theme: Nature + People & Governance

Effective and equitable governance of nature’s use

People everywhere depend on nature for their well-being. From food, fuel and freshwater, to crop pollination, flood protection and climate regulation, nature provides the fundamental infrastructure needed for societies to survive and prosper.

But decisions on nature management and use are not always fair and appropriate, and nature’s benefits are not equitably shared. Richer countries and social elites are better placed to reap the benefits while poorer nations and communities bear the cost of biodiversity loss and get little or no benefit. How to strike a better balance?
