Whitepaper examines the role of technology and finance to address biodiversity challenges

A new white paper ‘Bloom or bust’, that has been produced by USB together with experts including Dr Miguel Fernandez from the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) and Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, takes stock of where the world stands on biodiversity loss, existing solutions, and the role that finance, government action, and collaboration can play.

“Given the strong dependencies between the global economy and nature, the urgency of tackling biodiversity loss is not only an environmental imperative, but also a crucial economic imperative”, says Dr Miguel Fernandez. “Governments, the private sector, and academia should feel that participating in success stories where we collaboratively mobilize technological and financial solutions is not a sacrifice, but an opportunity to catalyze innovation and to strength our adaptive capacity to deal with an uncertain future while we work together to foster a sustainable, nature-positive economy.”
