In their 2022 publication, Nereus member Matilda Petersson and Peter Stoett review articles published in the International Environmental Agreements: Politics, Law, and Economics (INEA) journal from 2000-2020, to determine the lessons learnt in global biodiversity governance.
This work paints a picture of the main barriers to efficient biodiversity governance, and brings to light key issues to address in order to accelerate the process of protecting global biodiversity. Some of these lessons include differentiating a challenge from implementation ineffectiveness, lacking coordination and policy coherences, needed institutional changes and policy reforms, the crucial need to understand local political dynamics, and finally how equity concerns remain central biodiversity policy development.
These lessons learnt offer valuable insights on research gaps and suggest future thematic directions for contributors to INEA.
