SDCE support and collaborate with other organizations on SDGs 15 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development , to “protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss”.
SDCE support the use of biodiversity in a sustainable manner, using natural resources at a rate that the earth can renew them, to ensure that we meet the needs of both present and future generations. as the human population increases, so does the pressure on ecosystems, since we draw ever more resources from them. SDCE support the conservation of biodiversity; sustainable use of biodiversity; and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising from the use of genetic resources. a world in which we achieve land degradation neutrality will also be a world with improved biodiversity.
Human activity has already altered over 75 per cent of all ice-free land. In most terrestrial habitats, native species have greatly diminished in the last century, and up to one billion species are now at risk of extinction. Habitat loss to meet our demand for food, raw materials or buildings is the leading cause of species extinction. Conserving, restoring, and sustainably managing habitats and ecosystems is recognized as the most effective way to protect biodiversity.
