This report synthesises key findings on biodiversity and ecosystem services from the
Environmental Performance Reviews completed for Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and
Peru between 2013 and 2017. The report aims to provide a sense of the common challenges
facing these Latin American countries, the strategies being used to tackle them, the
gaps that remain and how these can be addressed. Focusing on Latin America is particularly
pertinent given the great wealth of biodiversity in the region and the growing pressures
on its conservation and sustainable use.
