Protected areas are the foundation for safeguarding ecosystems, species and genes in all their abundance and diversity. The Life Web Initiative aims at supporting the implementation of the CBD Programme of Work on Protected Areas through enhancing partnerships at the global level. The purpose of the initiative is to match voluntary commitments for the designation of new protected areas and the improved management of existing areas with commitments for dedicated (co-)financing of these areas.
