© Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018. Life in this planet is a big concern for humanity, and biodiversity conservation is, without any doubt, one of the major key components to preserve life on Earth. Since Rio 1992, many actions, efforts, and instruments were developed and adopted to face the challenge of biodiversity conservation, such as the Convention on Biological Diversity, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Millennium Development Goals, 2030 Agenda, the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and its Aichi Biodiversity Targets, the Implementation of Biodiversity, the Paris Agreement, the Marrakech Action Proclamation, and the Cartagena and Nagoya Protocols, among others. In addition to international compromises, every country member of the UNFCCC has its own legal instruments to protect and conserve biodiversity. Mexico is one of those countries with the high responsibility as a megadiverse country.
