Financial statistics

Goal 1 of the Convention’s Strategy for Resource Mobilization seeks to “Improve information base on funding needs, gaps and priorities”, with three strategic objectives:

“1.1. To improve the existing financial information base through enhancing accuracy, consistency and delivery of existing data and improved reporting on funding needs and shortfalls for the Convention’s three objectives. Funding trends could be measured through the following indicators: (a) OECD DAC Rio markers on biodiversity; (b) National reports of Parties; (c) Trends in funding to GEF; (d) Funding flows through a selected number of the large international NGOs.

“1.2. To assess economic costs of the loss of biodiversity and its associated ecosystem services, of the failure to take measures to fulfill the three objectives of the Convention, and benefits of early action to reduce loss of biological diversity and its associated ecosystem services.

“1.3. To improve priority-setting for guiding resource allocation to biological diversity and its associated ecosystem services”

The ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties decided to review implementation of goal 1 of the Convention’s strategy for resource mobilization at its tenth and twelfth meetings.
