The findings on biodiversity are shocking: species are vanishing at such high speed that researchers are talking in terms of a sixth major mass extinction happening within human history. Except that this time it will not be caused by a geological disaster, but by human beings, our production and consumption patterns and our modes of living. The incisive analysis and alarming statistics are not matched by a proportionate public awareness or a political agenda.

The present publication (PDF) introducing this complex issue area is a joint attempt by the Centre for Research and Documentation Chile-Latin America (Forschungs-und Dokumentationszentrum Chile-Lateinamerika e. V. – FDCL) and the Heinrich Böll Foundation to clarify the vital development-policy significance of the discussion over biodiversity.

The printed version of the publication can be ordered via Email: info@fdcl.org (3,00 EUR postage costs).

The publication is part of our Dossier on Biodiversity Conference in Cancún (CBD COP 13).
