    ExECUTIVE SUmmARYBiodiversity and ecosystem services are being degraded aster than at any other time in human history. Most othe worlds biodiversity is ound in Southern countries where people greatly depend on natural resources butsuer rom high levels o rural poverty and oten weak governance. Weak governance (eg. political marginalisationand corruption) is a key underlying driver o both biodiversity loss and poverty. At the same time, the role obiodiversity in the provision o ecosystem services that underpin national economies and rural livelihoods is largelyoverlooked. As the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment ound, reversing ecosystem degradation while meeting thegrowing demand or ecosystem services will require signicant changes in policies, institutions, and practices.
