Target 2 – Biodiversity values integrated

By 2020, at the latest, biodiversity values have been integrated into national and local development and poverty reduction strategies and planning processes and are being incorporated into national accounting, as appropriate, and reporting systems.

Key message

The Strategic Plan for Biodiversity presents a unique opportunity to incorporate biological and cultural diversity values into national economic strategies and planning for sustainable development. Joint implementation of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets alongside the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda opens the door for IPLCs to highlight their diverse local economies, customary sustainable use systems and traditional knowledge as forward-looking contributions to food security, community development and cultural renewal whilst conserving biodiversity and safeguarding Earth.
