Biodiversity Conservation


Biodiversity is not only important for maintaining ecological stability but also provides livelihood for millions poor people living in villages. Degradation of biodiversity, therefore, creates serious insecurity to both lives and livelihood of a critical mass. Despite being one of the hot spots for biodiversity, Bangladesh has been struggling to conserve her valuable biodiversity resources due to population pressures, habitat conversion to settlements, and environmental pollution. The Unnayan Onneshan continues to investigate the root causes of biodiversity loss and develop approaches for biodiversity conservation. The Unit assumes that sustainable use of biodiversity contribute to poverty alleviation along with conserving valuable biodiversity resources. The UO’s intervention in biodiversity stretches from building local conversation models to influence global biodiversity policy platforms like UN CBD, CITES etc.
