Biodiversity is a broad concept that includes various ecosystems, levels, and sectors. This chapter focuses on the value of biological diversity, its loss, and scarcity issues; it addresses the degradation of biodiversity involved in cooperative responses across the globe. A major part of the chapter discusses the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) along with the controversial issue of Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS), which is involved in the protection of biodiversity at various levels and sectors. Important agreements, negotiations, and initiatives, which are important in understanding the aforementioned topics, are also discussed throughout the chapter, the final part of which examines issues and phases beyond the scarcity of biodiversity.

Keywords:   biological diversity, CBD, ABS
