The earth's biological diversity, or "biodiversity" in its widest sense is synonymous with "life on earth." Its loss has become an international concern in recent years and has led to the rapid ratification of the Convention on Biological Diversity, one of three international environmental treaties signed at the United Nations "Earth Summit" at Rio de Janeiro in 1992. But what are the most effective policy measures and strategies to safeguard it? Incentive measures have been identified by the Convention on Biological Diversity as an option, and pursued in many OECD countries. This report, with contributions from many recognised experts in the field, examines the status of biodiversity in OECD countries, the underlying pressures on it, and the role of incentive measures to help guide policy and human action towards conserving and sustainably using biodiversity.
