Call for evidence on Biodiversity loss

Following commitments at the G8+5 meeting in March 2007, the Commission is supporting a Review on the Economics of Biodiversity Loss.

The Review will evaluate the costs of the loss of biodiversity and the associated decline in ecosystem services and will aim to achieve a better understanding of why action to halt the loss of biodiversity would make economic sense.

There are many reasons why preventing biodiversity loss should be addressed as a political priority, when the G8+5 endorsed the Potsdam Initiative they concluded it was essential to have an assessment of the economic arguments.

This web-based call for evidence on the economics of Biodiversity Loss is open for 6 weeks and up to end December 2007.

The results of the call for evidence will contribute to a preparatory report on the Review to be presented at the Ninth Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in Bonn, Germany, in May 2008.

The link below provides details on the issues that the submissions should cover, as well as on the way this information should be submitted:
