National biodiversity target alignment is a first step towards early action on the Convention on Biological Diversity's Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF). As a component of the EAS project, your government is encouraged to rapidly commence engaging stakeholders to align national biodiversity targets with the new GBF goals and targets (component 1).
This webinar aimed to orient you to the CBD COP 15 Decision 15/6: Mechanisms for Planning, Monitoring, Reporting, and Review and other COP 15 decisions that provide guidance on revising or updating NBSAPs. In Annex I of Decision 15/6, Parties are requested to submit their national targets and report on their degree of alignment with the goals and targets of the GBF. Where alignment does not already exist existing targets should be revised/updated, or new targets established. Governments also shared the indicators that their country will use to monitor these targets, among other information. Technical and financial support is available to your government to achieve this outcome prior to COP 16. Questions about implementation of this project component were also discussed and linkages between this activity and the full NBSAP revision process were addressed.
Through this webinar, Parties:
- Were informed of the COP 15 decisions relating to the revision/updating of NBSAPs following the adoption of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework.
- Learned about the “Template for submission of national targets as part of NBSAPs toward the implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework” in Annex I of the CBD COP 15 Decision 15/6 “Mechanisms for Planning, Monitoring, Reporting, and Review”, which Parties agreed to fill out by COP16.
- Learned about the resources and support that the GBF-EAS project will provide to countries to help them to:
- Assess alignment between their national biodiversity targets and the GBF targets and goals
- Create a plan to ensure that aligned national biodiversity targets are updated in line with the GBF targets and goals and are operational (measurable, costed, spatially-explicit where appropriate, and grounded in programs)
- Undertake the above activities through a whole-of-government and whole-of-society approach
The webinar was offered in three languages: English, French, and Spanish. Webinar recordings are available in the Course Content section on this page.
