Target 17 – Biodiversity strategies and action plans

By 2015, each Party has developed, adopted as a policy instrument, and has commenced implementing an effective, participatory and updated national biodiversity strategy and action plan.

Key message

The process of developing, updating and/or revising an NBSAP provides Parties with a major opportunity to implement the Convention on Biological Diversity with all relevant stakeholders. IPLCs are essential partners for achieving tangible outcomes at the local and national level and as such should be fully involved in the development, updating and/or revision of NBSAPs. However, the engagement of IPLCs in the NBSAP process is not yet receiving sufficient attention by Parties and needs to be urgently addressed.
