The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) has published The Governance of Nature and the Nature of Governance: Policy that works for biodiversity and livelihoods, an output of its collaborative research project Policy That Works for Biodiversity and Poverty Reduction. The report, based on a literature review and three country case studies, examines biodiversity governance at local, national and international levels – policy and institutional support for community based conservation, mainstreaming biodiversity in development sectors and biodiversity planning, and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) process. It also reviews existing good governance principles for biodiversity, including the CBD’s Ecosystem Approach and the Durban principles for protected areas. You can find the report online.
