logo-undb-en

The Biodiversity and Community Health (BaCH) Initiative’s overall goal is to foster the linkages between biodiversity and health for sustainable development. In light of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011–2020 the BaCH Initiative highlights how international development goals can be reached through an integrated approach. Bringing together key agencies including the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) and Bioversity International, the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD) jointly with the World Health Organization (WHO) will launch the State of Knowledge Review during the upcoming twelfth meeting of the Conference of the Parties in October 2014.
