Overview on Implementation

A comprehensive synthesis and review was prepared in 2008 on the progress at national level in the implementation of Article 11 and the programme of work on incentive measures.

On the international level, achievements made under the programme of work generally fall into the following categories.

The development of international policy guidance to assist Parties and governments in addressing incentive measures

Detailed policy guidance was developed in form on the Proposals for Design and Implementation of Incentive Measures and in the form of the Options for the Application of Tools for Valuation of Biodiversity and Biodiversity Resources and Functions. Proposals on the Application of Ways and Means to Remove or Mitigate Perverse Incentives are also available, as voluntary interim guidance.

The gathering and dissemination of technical and analytical information on incentive measures, including case studies, lessons learnt, and good practices

The Conference of the Parties decided to put more emphasis on the implementation of the programme of work through enhanced sharing of information on good practices, lessons learned, difficulties encountered, and other practical experience on its implementation, as well as assessments, studies, analyses, and capacity building. Pertinent information is available in the database on incentive measures, in form of synthesis reports, as well as in form of technical series documents.

An international expert workshop, held in October 2009, identified lessons learned and good practice cases in identifying and removing or mitigating perverse incentives, and in promoting positive incentive measures.
