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 provides a snapshot of the many on-the-ground initiatives of indigenous peoples and local communities which contribute to the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011–2020 and to renewing nature and cultures. It complements the 5th Global Biodiversity Outlook (also published in 2020).
What I did
I copyedited the 67,000-word report and the separate 8000-word summary.
The report had several authors and includes 60 case studies.
It has been translated into Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish.
