Non IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

UNDP’s Environment and Energy Group is pleased to publish this Report which will be a cornerstone for future approaches and policy dialogue on the economics and management of ecosystem services. The Report highlights the economic contribution of biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services to development and equity in Latin America and the Caribbean. It is to serve as an economic tool for decision makers so that ecosystem services are considered in sectoral and national planning. Ecosystem services are used as proxies for biodiversity since they are easier to connect with sectoral outputs.
