Biodiversity - Biodiversité

Brief of the Program

The East African and Indian Ocean states (ESA-IO) is its rich Biodiversity and endemic species. However, as a result of pressure from human population expansion and economic development, this rich wildlife is now threatened. Impacts have included habitat destruction, overexploitation of living and water resources, pollution, soil degradation, the introduction of invasive alien species and the effects of climate change.

The objective of the Biodiversity project is to support the beneficiary countries in order to reduce the threat prevailing over the biodiversity and promote sustainable use of resources from biodiversity in the context of development and poverty reduction.
