Biodiversity refers to all lifeforms on Earth and when biodiversity declines, it can upset the ecosystem balance. Climate change, through rising temperatures, ocean warming and worsening weather, can drive biodiversity loss.
The Global Biodiversity Framework Fund was established at the recent meeting of the Seventh Assembly of the Global Environment Facility, which saw environmental leaders from 185 countries come together.
The fund will support projects which aim to stop and reverse biodiversity loss as well as promote recovery. The focus will be on projects in lesser developed countries, smaller island nations as well as indigenous communities.
So far two countries, Canada and U.K., have announced their participation commitment. Why not reach out to your government to see if it will be commiting to the fund.
