Local Biodiversity Outlooks


Forest Peoples Programme (UK)

What I did

Indigenous peoples and local communities all over the world have contributed to realising the goals and targets of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity’s Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011–2020.

In fact, it is on their lands and territories that much of the world’s remaining biodiversity exists.

Local Biodiversity Outlooks 2 (in press), published by Forest Peoples Programme, provides a snapshot of the many on-the-ground initiatives of indigenous peoples and local communities. It complements the 5th Global Biodiversity Outlook (also due to be published in 2020).

I copyedited the 67,000-word report, and the separate 8000-word summary, to comply with the client’s editorial style, and delivered an updated style sheet.

The report had several authors and includes 60 case studies.
