    Use of South Africa’s Biological Diversity (July ) is guided by the main aims of the Convention, namely conservation of biodiversi-ty, sustainable use of biological resources, and equity. The key goals of the policy are conservation of the diversity of landscapes, ecosystems, habitats, communities, populations, species and genes. Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biodiversity! Article 11 of Convention on Biological Diversity has emphasized on this issue by stating: “Each contracting party shall, as far as possible and as appropriate, adopt economically and socially sound measures that act as incentives for the conservation and sustainable use components of biological diversity.”. Education is essential for the sustainable and equitable use of biodiversity and its conservation. It is also crucial for mainstreaming biodiversity. The erosion of indigenous and local knowledge and the associated decline in sustainable traditional land use threatens biodiversity and ecosystems services, as well as communities’ contributions to accomplishing SDG 4 (inclusive.
