For the purposes of this chapter, the term biodiversity echoes the definition in the Convention on Biological Diversity and includes the variability among all life forms at the genetic, species, and ecosystem levels. Future research should uncover and highlight areas where the right balance has been struck between the social, environmental, and economic aspects of biodiversity issues, and areas where more work is needed to integrate the three areas of sustainable development as they relate to biodiversity. In particular, a future-oriented sustainable development law research agenda in international biodiversity law can focus on developing knowledge in two specific areas of inter-linkages. First, research is needed to define the linkages between different biodiversity-related policies and law in economic, environmental, and social regimes. Secondly, research is needed to strengthen connections between biodiversity initiatives at the national, regional, and international levels.

Keywords:   Convention on Biological Diversity, sustainable development, research agenda, international biodiversity law, inter-linkages
