Summary

Existing institutions are proving incapable of protecting global biodiversity and ecosystem services. New ideas and creative thinking are needed. The UN Green New Deal, which embraces organic agriculture, represents a potential for such a new beginning. Among its propositions, green investments and new certification systems seem promising institutional mechanisms to reduce human pressure on biodiversity and ecosystem services. Another promising development is the increased realization of the economic value of biodiversity and ecosystem services which may be useful elements of GND architecture.
