Ecosystems and Biodiversity

Ecosystems and biodiversity must be maintained to provide the balance needed by the planet, the economy and society as a whole. Information on the natural environment is an essential part of this process, to ensure that society not only benefits from the services rendered by ecosystems, but also evolves within a context of sustainable development.
