The benefits that nature offers to humans (ecosystem services) are the link between biodiversity and human well-being and permeate, directly or indirectly, various United Nations Environmental Multilateral Agreements such as the Convention on Biological Diversity (Aichi Targets) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
