The upcoming Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) meeting, and adoption of the new Global Biodiversity Framework, represent an opportunity to transform humanity's relationship with nature. Restoring nature while meeting human needs requires a bold vision, including mainstreaming biodiversity conservation in society. We present a framework that could support this: the Mitigation and Conservation Hierarchy.

Maintaining or restoring connectivity among wildlife populations is a primary strategy to overcome the negative impacts of habitat fragmentation. Yet, current connectivity planning efforts typically assess landscape resistance, the ability of organisms to cross various biophysical elements in a landscape, while overlooking the various ways in which human behaviors influence connectivity. Here, we introduce the concept of “anthropogenic resistance” to capture the impacts of human behaviors on species' movement through a landscape.

This journal article advances SDG 10 by discussing that there is a long history in medicine of using healthy White men as the standard for normal, ascribing anything different as abnormal, other, or requiring adjustments. Although our understanding of and access to genetics has improved significantly in the past decades, our reliance on race as a proxy for genetic markers has not changed, suggesting that medicine as a profession, a system, and an institution has yet to erase racist ideologies acquired from the past.
