Island Biodiversity
Edited by: Cipriano Marín, Paola Deda, Jo Mulongoy.

This The aim of this publication, result of a joint idea of the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity and UN-SIDS (Small Island Developing States Unit of the Division for Sustainable Development of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs), is to offer reference elements and a meditation framework before one of the most important challenges that the island world is facing at present: conservation, use, and exploitation of islands’ natural and biological heritage. Islands make up a real world that it is not sufficiently recognised yet, which hosts more than 500 million inhabitants and exercises a direct influence on an important share of our planet. In fact, although islands and Small Island States are, individually considered, small territories, they jointly exercise their jurisdiction on more than one sixth of Earth’s total area.
