Practically, prior, to the industrial revolution in the 19th century the Biodiversity coexist in an organic Planet Earth for their livelihoods. Communication needs is crucial for resilient ecology and biosafety for increase and sustainable productivity. Though, technological advancements are beneficial, yet, with major challenges based on biodynamics outlook as a result of the climate change globally. These phenomena posed hazard to the bio units. Thus, the study purpose is to identify and describe issues; established on reviewed of relevant literatures. Mixed method was adopted for data collection and randomly utilized. The study describes some of the biodiversity cum technological (biodivertech) implications. Identifies issues such as, pollution (air, sea and land), decline in animals and mass extinction; low yield in plants. The rationale is to reecho the facts and their core effects on sensitivity and resilience of biodiversity. IUCN report that, 41% of amphibians, 25% of mammals, 34% of conifers, 13% of birds, 31% of sharks and rays, 33% of reef-building corals, and 27% of crustaceans are threatened with extinction. Identify Biocontrol and Biopesticides developed by IAR. Fundamentally, these, adverse effects were not communicated and handle appropriately in developing countries, like in developed countries. We thus, submit that, more action must be taking to check the biodiversity activities; develop ecofriendly technologies for healthy functioning of the ecosystem; put in action ideological framework to help identify the root causes and proffers solution globally. In conclusion, help developing countries generate revenues to cover the cost of managing biodiversity for better livelihood.
