“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, based on success stories and good practices… National implementation should include, as appropriate, the design and dissemination of a country-specific resource mobilization strategy, with the involvement of key stakeholders such as non-governmental organizations, indigenous peoples and local communities, environmental funds, businesses and donors, in the frame of updated national biodiversity strategies and action plans”
-- Strategy for resource mobilization, paragraph 12
Since many national biodiversity strategies and action plans have not been appropriately implemented in the past decade, the significance of country-specific resource mobilization strategies will reveal gradually over time. According to decision X/3, regional workshops will be organized to support the development of country-specific resource mobilization strategies and monitor their implementation. Global Environment Facility will provide financial support to eligible countries for developing country-specific resource mobilization strategies. The indicative guidelines for country-specific resource mobilization strategies are also available for consultation.
For the biennium 2011-2012, the following activities are expected:
- Country-specific resource mobilization strategies will be developed around the world;
- Global Environment Facility and other donors extend financial support to the development of country-specific resource mobilization strategies;
- Regional and subregional workshops to provide technical support and exchange information and experiences on country-specific resource mobilization strategies, with the possibility of developing regional or subregional resource mobilization strategies.
