Putbus/Isle of Vilm, 6 May 2019: Final efforts for Aichi target 11 The Target 11 Partnership aims to facilitate the achievement of Aichi Biodiversity Target 11 by October 2020 through decentralized implementation of focused actions, in a concerted manner, with comprehensive coordination among all relevant partners. 10 regional implementation support networks have been established to coordinate and align national activities, bring partners together and identify gaps and opportunities so that maximum possible progress is achieved.
The regional partners now met on Vilm from 24 - 27 April to exchange, review progress in the identification of gaps and approaches and agree on ways to report and monitor progress.
The biggest potential in reaching the coverage targets of AT 11 lies in updating the World Database on Protected Areas and in reporting "Other Effective Area-Based Conservation Measures (OECMs). The group also discussed priorities for the PA related post 2020 targets.
With only 1.5 years remaining to achieve the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, the Target 11 Partnership provides a platform for all committed Parties and partners to express their intent and reiterate their commitments to achieve Aichi Biodiversity Target 11 by 2020. The Partnership serves to stimulate regional implementation support networks of partners, including donors, to align their activities with national priority actions to facilitate effective implementation and the achievement of Target 11. With the envisaged alignment of activities and funding through this Partnership, partners can reinforce their on-going efforts, energy and resources to reach, or surpass Target 11 within the remaining time.
