Abstract: While biodiversity is critical for financial activity, it is under attack worldwide, and its capacity to keep providing the commodities and services necessary for socioeconomic development is eroding. Globally, the ramifications of this have been summarized in a landmark study — the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA). It emphasizes that people have altered the natural environment in unprecedented ways over the last several decades to fulfill expanding needs for food, fresh water, fiber, and energy, and that this requirement will only expand as the world’s population expands and spending habits shift (UNEP FI Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services Work Stream (BESW), 2008).
Keywords: ecosystem services, biodiversity, global sustainability, environmental policy, climate change, ecosystem processes, human well-being, legal risks, pressures, diversification.
