Framing and Reframing of Biodiversity in International Governance

Nature protection and sustainable use of biological resources have been on the political

agenda for over a century, but the loss of biodiversity is still accelerating. It is thus

important to better understand limits and potentials of the architecture of biodiversity

governance. This paper analyzes the evolution of international biodiversity governance

in order to reveal when and why new ways of framing biodiversity have been established.

It notes that the framing of biodiversity has shifted many times and that today’s governance

architecture features several competing views that link to politically contentious

issues such as sovereignty and resource rights. The analysis also shows that arenas for

science-policy dialogues have been important for including broader societal concerns in

discussions of conservation, which has made biodiversity governance a leader in identifying

issues that have become central to global sustainability governance, including attention

to developing country priorities, equity and participation by local stakeholders.
