image of Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use in Latin America

This report synthesises key findings on biodiversity and ecosystem services from the Environmental Performance Reviews completed for Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru between 2013 and 2017. The report aims to provide a sense of the common challenges facing these Latin American countries, the strategies being used to tackle them, the gaps that remain and how these can be addressed. Focusing on Latin America is particularly pertinent given the great wealth of biodiversity in the region and the growing pressures on its conservation and sustainable use.



Main findings and conclusions

This chapter summarises the report’s main findings and conclusions. It begins with an overview of the main status, trends and pressures on biodiversity and ecosystems in the reviewed Latin American countries, followed by a discussion on the institutional and policy frameworks, financing, and mechanisms to mainstream biodiversity into sectoral policies. For each section, the chapter highlights some good practices and innovative solutions implemented in the countries.
