People and Biodiversity Policies

Impacts, Issues and Strategies for Policy Action

The implementation of biodiversity policies will often benefit different groups to a greater or lesser degree. For example, in establishing a property right to facilitate management of a biodiversity-related resource, people who previously had unrestricted use will be adversely affected. Combining analysis and a wealth of case studies, this book offers concepts and tools for addressing distributive issues in biodiversity policy. It will help policy makers put together strategies for anticipating distributive impacts across different groups; and for selecting processes and instruments that manage distributive impacts without compromising conservation and use objectives.

Hide / Show Abstract

Biodiversity policies are about promoting "the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the utilisation of genetic resources" (CBD, 1992). The aim of improving and maintaining biologically diverse habitats and ecosystems is to create net benefits to society by realising all of biodiversity’s values: material benefits, as well as those that are less easily quantified.
