Private Business Action for Biodiversity

01 Sep 2016 to 31 Dec 2021


Private enterprise has an important role to play in countering contributory factors to the loss of biodiversity. This global project is supporting methods and instruments to ensure biodiversity-friendly production and marketing, and compiling the insights obtained for use by private and public-sector actors. An initial orientation phase was used to identify promising approaches from agriculture and forestry, including capacity development, impact monitoring, management tools, traceability and financing instruments. The implementation phase focused on model-based field trials and the further development of selected methods and instruments, with priority being given to small and medium-sized businesses. A best practice approach was applied to consolidate project findings for the use of private and public-sector actors alike. The examples were also being used in consulting services for policymakers.
