"Every day, there is one new thing to try"
"It comes as no surprise that climate change and biodiversity are closely linked. Financial institutions play a key role in ensuring that fragile ecosystems are protected and biodiversity conservation is anchored in business. After all, they are the ones determining which sectors are empowered and which ones are not..."
Linda Broekhuizen interviewed Sandra Abella, Director of Ecobusiness Fund about promoting sustainable practices in biodiversity conservation, measuring the value of progress and opportunities to partner for biodiversity.
"The big thing we underestimate in this discourse is land tenure"
"The need to conserve an area that will never belong to a person is a lot less important than to a person who can see the results that will directly benefit them. And while women are often the first ones to notice the effects of climate change, take a long-term view and actively engage in the conversation, land tenure is in the hands of men.”
Linda Broekhuizen and Stephanie Doig, Compliance Director at Miro Forestry cover the many interesting facets of biodiversity conservation in forestry: from bringing smallholders into the conversation to measuring impact and progress, and the complexity of land tenure and gender.
