The strategy for resource mobilization is intended to assist Parties in establishing national targets, goals and objectives as well as actions and timeframes, and in considering the establishment of financial mechanisms and other options, to implement the financial provisions of the Convention at all levels. National implementation should include, as appropriate, the design and dissemination of a country-specific resource mobilization strategy, with the involvement of key stakeholders.
In decision X/3 the Conference of the Parties requested the Executive Secretary, subject to the availability of resources, to organize regional and subregional workshops to assist with the development of country-specific resource mobilization strategies, including for indigenous and local communities, as part of the process of updating national biodiversity strategy and action plans, to promote exchange of experience and good practice in financing for biological diversity, and to facilitate the national monitoring of the outcomes of country specific resource mobilization strategies. In response to this request a number of workshops
have been conducted to support Parties in the development of country specific resource mobilization strategies
. In addition to these workshops, issues related to financial resources have also been addressed during the course of several of the Regional and Sub-Regional Capacity-building Workshops for implementing the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 through National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans
