Biodiversity is being viewed in the context of sustainable development offers opportunities for poverty eradication, human well-being and the livelihood and socio-cultural integrity of people and. A reduction in biodiversity diminishes the capacity of ecosystems to provide a stable and sustainable supply of essential goods and services such as clean air and water and also reduces genetic variability, which could potentially decrease the amount of natural resources available for future use.

The mission of NBA is to ensure effective implementation of Biological Diversity Act, and the Biological Diversity Rules for conservation of biodiversity, sustainable use of its components and fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising out of utilization of genetic resources.

Sustainable use Definition. Sustainable use means the use of components of biological diversity in a way and at a rate that does not lead to the long-term decline of biological diversity, thereby maintaining its potential to meet the needs and aspirations of present and future generations.

Convention on Biological Diversity. Strategies for sustainable use of land and biological resources, and for returning something of the value of biodiversity to developing countries, require greater scientific scrutiny.

Finally, research on the restoration and utilization. The Convention of Biological Diversity provides a global legal framework for action on biodiversity It is a key instrument to promote sustainable development and tackle the global loss of biodiversity.

Biodiversity can be measured through the use. IEBR have collaborated with numerous research institutions, organizations, and NGOs in Vietnam and overseas in research on ecology and biological resources, biodiversity conservation, environmental mornitoring and pollution treatment, mitigation of climate change impacts, sustainable utilization of biological resources.
