As part of their work with governments, more and more Partners are tackling policy issues, with over 70 active in 2007 compared to just six in 1998. As well as policy sectors that deal directly with biodiversity, Partners are also starting to address those that have a major indirect impact (such as climate change), or cut across the other sectors (such as poverty reduction, conservation finance and tourism).
