The Cost of Policy Inaction (COPI): The case of not meeting the 2010 biodiversity target




Biodiversity is both a factor in and an indicator of the health of all ecosystem processes. The majority of ecosystems across the globe have been greatly modified by humans. The evidence suggests that many wildlife populations are declining as a result of human activities. The result will be a more homogenized biosphere with lower diversity at regional and global scales. These changes in biodiversity have already important implications for the functioning of ecosystems and services to human society. The Costs of Policy Inaction (COPI) study aims to highlight the need for action, prior to the specific development and appraisal of policy instruments.
