- What are Aichi Targets?
- Strategic goal A
- Strategic Goal B
- Strategic Goal C
- Strategic Goal D
- Strategic Goal E
Let’s recap what we learned in previous article:
Earth Summit led to=>
- Biodiversity protection: CBD (Cartagena+ Aichi+Nagoya)
- Reverse Climate Change: UNFCCC (Kyoto+ Copenhagen)
- Sustainable Development: Agenda 21, RIO+20
COP-10 under CBD
- The Parties (Countries) under Convention of Biodiversity (CBD), meet at regular interval.
- These meetings are called Conference of Parties (COP)
- 10th such meeting was held at Aichi precinct (district) of Nagoya, Japan.
- This COP-10 gave birth to two things
- Nagoya Protocol on Genetic Resources
- Aichi Targets for biodiversity
In the COP-10 meeting, the parties agreed that previous biodiversity protection targets are not achieved, So we need to do comeup with new plans and targets.
|Mid/Long term||By 2050|
|Short term||By 2020|
- This short term plan is officially known as “Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020”.
- It is a a ten-year framework for action by all countries to save biodiversity.
- This short term plan provide a set of 20 ambitious yet achievable targets, collectively known as the Aichi Targets.
- Make people aware about the values of biodiversity
- Integrated biodiversity values in development + poverty reduction plan

- Prevent extinction of threatened species
- Maintain genetic diversity of agro-plants, domesticated animals and minimising genetic erosion

- Combat desertification and restore the degraded ecosystem
- Operationalise the nagoya protocol on genetic resources, via national legislations
