This side event will provide guidance on the different elements of Target 11 and launch the Protected Planet Report 2012. The report, the first in a new series of regular reports prepared by UNEP-WCMC, IUCN and a wide range of partners, summarizes global progress towards Target 11. The side event will also report on the work of IUCN's WCPA-SSC Joint Task Force on Biodiversity which is examining some of the key questions around Target 11. This includes a global study on the best predictors for protected area success and failure in conserving biodiversity. Finally the side event will look at case studies, especially from Asia, where countries are making progress towards meeting Target 11, and plans for the first Asia Park Congress to be held in 2013
