Biodiversity for the Millennium Development Goals: What local organisations can do

A recent review shows that community-led conservation can contribute to human well-being and to the achievement of many Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), but in the majority of cases, it remains small-scale, isolated and not integrated within the formal conservation sector. We suggest that, given appropriate support, community conservation could achieve much more for poverty reduction.

Global goals and international agreements
Lessons for the design of the Sustainable Development Goals

Drawing evidence from over 150 pieces of literature on international agreements, this paper proposes lessons for the design of the SDGs.
