¿What is a Biodiversity credit?
It is a tool for investment in biodiversity conservation and enhancement, not intended for compliance or compensation for biodiversity loss. Its focus lies in assessing the cost of human labor and technology required for conserving and enhancing biodiversity. It's essential to emphasize that it does not aim to capture, commodify, or put a price on nature itself.
Clear objectives guide the conservation of habitats and endangered species in Colombia, covering critical, endangered, and vulnerable areas. The distribution of endangered species is assessed according to IUCN criteria for an effective approach.
The assessment of vulnerability to climate change and the drivers of transformation and loss of biodiversity are closely related to social and economic aspects. These aspects are interconnected with factors related to resource management and the determinants of ecosystem degradation or conservation. Risk assessment and management are essential to understanding and addressing these challenges effectively.
