Biodiversity and the Great Green Wall: managing nature for sustainable development in the Sahel, is the new publication of IUCN which explores the dependence of humanity on nature and the importance of biodiversity for wellbeing and sustainable development in the Sahel. The report is written to raise awareness of the critical role for biodiversity in achieving the goals of the Great Green Wall. It presents new evidence of the links between biodiversity, ecosystem services and human welfare, and demonstrates the importance of biodiversity for sustainable agriculture, providing arguments for the connection between the agricultural and environmental sectors.
The study of the International Union for Conservation of Nature – Central and West Africa Programme was supported by the World Bank with funds from the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
