Biodiversity

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convention_on_Biological_Diversity

Quoted in "The World Is Blue": "At the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1972, the Convention on Biological Diversity treaty was produced.

By 2007 the treaty had been ratified by 190 nations.

Data assembled by thousands of scientists and organizations working with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) "provide insight into how much has gone missing in recent years owing to human impacts and help gauge the level of ongoing threats."

So far [2010] only about 50,000 species out of millions have been assessed."

This document is produced for project developers and their consultants responsible for preparing Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs). It summarizes "good practices" for biodiversity inclusive impact assessment and management planning in ESIAs. The document is based on a review and synthesis of various reports and guidance documents from multi-lateral finance institutions (MFIs), government regulators, industry associations, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). It is not intended to replace ESIA guidance, but rather to supplement it where biodiversity is not adequately covered. This document is a companion to Good Practices for the Collection of Biodiversity Baseline Data.
