Biodiversity is not a problem, it’s a solution!

The first Brazilian National Assessment Report on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services has launched, with its key message for policymakers: “Biodiversity is not a problem, it’s a solution!”

The Brazilian Platform for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (BPBES) Report was inspired by and structured along the lines of IPBES assessments – and is another good example of the impact of the work that IPBES is doing.

BPBES shares the IPBES mission of strengthening the interface between science and policy for biodiversity and ecosystem services for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, long-term human well-being and sustainable development.

We commend the efforts of the authors, experts and the inclusive group of stakeholders all working to protect this biodiversity hot-spot of global importance. As the Report makes clear, the impact of biodiversity loss in Brazil can be felt far beyond its borders.
