La Biodiversidad desde la visión de género de las Mujeres Indígenas

El programa de la UICN a nivel mundial describe claramente la dependencia directa e indirecta de la humanidad sobre la biodiversidad.

Mainstreaming Biodiversity into Mining in South Africa

The potential of mining to impact biodiversity is well known, but little has been done in South Africa, one of the world´s major mining countries, to assist mining companies to reduce their impacts on biodiversity and contribute positively to biodiversity conservation.
