The Equator Initiative - 4-25 September 2005
eqinitifront.gif

The Equator Initiative is showcased at Expo 2005 Aichi, Japan. The Equator Initiative's work is highlighted in a special display on biodiversity and development issues at the UN Pavilion during this global event. It is expected that up to 150,000 visitors per day will visit the Expo 2005 site.

A simple fact lies at the heart of the Equator Initiatives work: the worlds greatest concentrations of biological wealth are found in the tropics, in countries that also have some of the highest levels of poverty. The good news is that communities are charting a path towards sustainability, creatively using biological resources for food, medicine, shelter and improved livelihoods in ways that raise incomes and dont harm the environment. The Equator Initiative champions and supports community efforts to link economic development and income generation with the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
