We would like to suggest the addition of the word ‘livelihoods security’ before poverty alleviation, so that it would read: ‘…as a contribution to livelihoods security, poverty alleviation and to the benefit of all life on earth.’
Poverty alleviation may be based on quantification of dollars per day, which does not fully capture the issue of entitlement to resources. As we are dealing with biodiversity and people, it makes much more sense to speak about livelihoods.
