Environment, Biodiversity & Green Economy

Environment and ecosystem management are key to ensuring urban and rural development and progress towards the achievement of the SDGs. Poor communities directly depend on natural resources for their livelihood and are the most vulnerable to a degraded environment, natural disasters and are the first to suffer from polluted air, water and soil. Sound natural resource use is at the core of effective strategies to strengthen resilience to climate change and Green economy.
