The conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and the equitable sharing of the benefits from the use of genetic resources underpin sustainable development and human well-being. Biodiversity, through the ecosystem services it supports, makes an important contribution to both climate-change mitigation and adaptation. Biodiversity is also affected by climate, with negative consequences for human well-being. Consequently conserving and sustainably managing biodiversity is critical to addressing climate change.
