Target 7 – Sustainable agriculture, aquaculture and forestry

By 2020 areas under agriculture, aquaculture and forestry are managed sustainably, ensuring conservation of biodiversity

Key message

IPLCs’ customary sustainable use practices and management systems, including community-based innovations, are increasingly recognised as effective ecosystem-based conservation approaches and have a very valuable role to play in achieving this target. The translation of the CBD’s Plan of Action on Customary Sustainable Use of Biological Diversity[xxxi] into national and local plans and targets, and the implementation of these, provide a framework for increased recognition and support for such approaches.
