The long-term survival and well-being of people depends on effective conservation of the world’s biodiversity. This requires living landscapes: landscapes that are able to support life of all
forms now and into the future. Pressures on biodiversity show no sign of abating, yet resources for conservation action are limited. This means we need to be strategic – to focus our efforts
where they will have the greatest impact. Conservation planning gives us a tool for achieving this.
