  4. 4. Where we’re at: Literature Review and Official Development Finance to Biodiversity • Messages emerging from first draft of literature review – There remain few examples in the academic literature of synergies between biodiversity and development being achieved on the ground, and of mainstreaming biodiversity into development. – There is an important financing gap to biodiversity, which cannot be filled by ODA alone.
  5. 5. – ODA to biodiversity has decreased 2010-2012. – ODA is increasingly targeting multiple environmental objectives – 1/3 of activities go to capacity building – LDCs and SIDS not receiving more attention than other countries Trends in bilateral Official Development Assistance to biodiversity 0% 1% 2% 3% 4% 5% 6% 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 ShareoftotalODAcommitments USDbillion Total biodiversity-related ODA 2006-2012, bilateral commitments, USD billion, constant 2011 prices Principal Significant Share of total ODA commitments
