Mainstreaming

Goal 5 of the Convention’s Strategy for Resource Mobilization seeks to: “Mainstream biological diversity and its associated ecosystem services in development cooperation plans and priorities including the linkage between Convention’s work programmes and Millennium Development Goals,” with five strategic objectives:

“5.1. To integrate considerations on biological diversity and its associated ecosystem services into the priorities, strategies and programmes of multilateral and bilateral donor organizations, including sectoral and regional priorities, taking into account the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness.

“5.2. To integrate considerations on biological diversity and its associated ecosystem services in economic and development plans, strategies and budgets of developing country Parties.

“5.3. To integrate effectively the three objectives of the Convention into the United Nations development system, as well as international financial institutions and development banks.

“5.4. To strengthen cooperation and coordination among funding partners at the regional and subregional levels, taking into account the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness.

“5.5. To enhance financial, scientific, technical and technological cooperation with international organizations, non-governmental organizations, indigenous peoples’ organizations and public institutions for biological diversity and its associated ecosystem services.”

The ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties decided to review implementation of goal 5 of the Convention’s strategy for resource mobilization at its eleventh meeting.

For the biennium 2011-2012, the following activities are expected:

  • Parties and relevant stakeholders to submit information and relevant experiences on goal 5 of the strategy for resource mobilization;
  • The fourth meeting of the Ad Hoc Open-Ended Working Group on Review of Implementation to consider the implementation of goal 5;
  • The tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to review goal 5 and advise on further implementation.
