Environment and Biodiversity Division

The Environment and Bio-Diversity Division facilitates UNESCO’s work of helping to build the scientific knowledge base so that countries can manage their Ecosystems and biodiversity, water and mineral resources in a sustainable way which is crucial for reducing poverty and economic development.

Its goal is to promote international collaboration in the geological sciences, including natural disaster mitigation, medical geology and mineral and groundwater resource extraction. It also promotes a better understanding of the Earth which is also essential for preserving the diversity of life and sustaining the future of human society.

It is concerned with the interface of human activity and the rest of the biosphere, or the relationship between humans and nature including specific ecosystems such as mountains, drylands, tropical forests, urban systems, wetlands, and marine, island and coastal systems to enrich the international policy response to the biodiversity crisis.
