What Switzerland can do for biodiversity

Policy options for selected sectors

The marked decline in biodiversity is affecting the very basis of human life. The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) has identified a wide range of options for counteracting this loss and safeguarding the services nature provides. Various policy areas can thus make a significant contribution to effectively promoting sustainable development for the benefit of biodiversity and people. An analysis for Switzerland clearly shows that there is still great potential for implementing these policy options.
