Norway - National Targets

Show map

The national targets (or equivalent) presented in this database are taken from the NBSAPs received since COP-10, fifth national reports or from documents submitted separately. The mapping of national targets to the Aichi Biodiversity Targets by the Party concerned is indicated in the last column “Related Aichi Target(s)”. All Parties are encouraged to undertake this mapping exercise and to submit this information to SCBD for incorporation in this database.

Reference Target Related Strategic Goals/Aichi Targets
Environmental Target 7.1 Towns and urban areas will be sustainable and attractive, will conform to the principles of functional design, and will promote health and a good quality of life. 4
Environmental Target 5.4 Management of all harvested stocks of mountain animals and plants will be ecosystem-based, and they will be harvested sustainably by 2020. 4
Environmental Target 1.9 The current extent of wilderness-like areas in Svalbard will be retained, biological and landscape diversity will be maintained virtually untouched by local human activity, and the value of protected areas for research will be safeguarded. It will be possible to enjoy the natural environment undisturbed by motor traffic and noise even in areas that are easily accessible from the settlements. 5
Environmental Targets 2.1, 3.1, 4.1, 5.1, 6.5 By 2020, the diversity of habitat types in freshwater, forest, wetlands, mountain and in cultural landscapes will be maintained or restored; this will include safeguarding genetic diversity and important ecological functions and services. 5
Environmental Target 1.1 The structure, functioning, productivity and diversity of marine ecosystems will be maintained or restored and they will provide a basis for value creation through the sustainable use of natural resources and ecosystem services. 6
Environmental Target 1.6 Management of all harvested marine species will be ecosystem-based, and they will be harvested sustainably. 6
Environmental Target 2.5 Management of all harvested freshwater animals and plants will be ecosystem-based, and they will be harvested sustainably by 2020. 6
Environmental Target 4.2 All forestry areas will be sustainably managed by 2020. 7
Environmental Target 4.1 By 2020, the diversity of habitat types in forests will be maintained or restored; this will include safeguarding genetic diversity and important ecological functions and services. 7
Environmental Target 4.5 Management of all harvested stocks of forest animals and plants will be ecosystem-based, and they will be harvested sustainably by 2020. 7
Environmental Target 6.7 All agricultural areas will be sustainably managed by 2020. 7
Environmental Target 1.2 All coastal waters will have good ecological and chemical status by 2021. 8
Environmental Target 1.8 Operational discharges will not result in damage to health or the environment, or result in a rise in background levels of oil or other environmentally hazardous substances. A low level of risk of acute pollution will be maintained, and continuous efforts will be made to reduce the level of risk. 8
Environmental Target 2.2 All water bodies will have good ecological and chemical status by 2021. 8
Environmental Target 9.1 Releases and use of substances that pose a serious threat to health or the environment will be continuously reduced with a view to eliminating them by 2020. 8
Environmental Target 9.2 The risk that releases and use of chemicals will cause damage to health or the environment will be minimised. 8
Environmental Target 9.3 The dispersal of substances that are persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic, and of other substances that give rise to an equivalent level of concern, from contaminated soil will be stopped or substantially reduced. Steps to reduce the dispersal of other substances that may cause injury to health or environmental damage will be taken on the basis of case-by-case risk assessments. 8
Environmental Target 9.4 Contamination of seabed sediments with substances that are hazardous to health or the environment will not give rise to serious pollution problems. 8
Environmental Target 9.5 Releases, the risk of releases and the spread of radioactive substances that may cause damage to health or the environment will be minimised. All radioactive waste will be handled safely and in an approved manner. 8
Environmental Target 10.1 Air pollution (SO2, NOx, VOCs, ammonia and particulate matter) will not cause health or environmental damage. 8
Environmental Targets 1.7, 2.7, 3.4, 4.7, 5.7, 6.9 Substantial adverse impacts of alien organisms on marine biodiversity and biodiversity in freshwater, wetlands, forest, mountains and in cultural landscapes will be avoided. 9
Environmental Target 1.1 The structure, functioning, productivity and diversity of marine ecosystems will be maintained or restored and they will provide a basis for value creation through the sustainable use of natural resources and ecosystem services. 10
Environmental Target 1.4 Maintain ecosystem functioning in coral reefs and other vulnerable ecosystems. 10
Environmental Target 1.3 A representative selection of marine areas will be protected for future generations. 11
Environmental Target 1.9 The current extent of wilderness-like areas in Svalbard will be retained, biological and landscape diversity will be maintained virtually untouched by local human activity, and the value of protected areas for research will be safeguarded. It will be possible to enjoy the natural environment undisturbed by motor traffic and noise even in areas that are easily accessible from the settlements. 11
Environmental Target 2.3 A representative selection of Norwegian lakes and rivers will be protected for future generations, and the conservation value of protected areas, protected river systems and national salmon rivers and fjords will be maintained or restored. 11
Environmental Targets 3.2, 4.3, 5.2, 6.6 A representative selection of wetlands, forest habitat, mountain habitat and habitat types in the cultural landscape will be protected for future generations, and the conservation value of protected areas will be maintained or restored. 11
Environmental Targets 1.5, 2.4, 3.3, 4.4, 5.3, 6.8 Losses of threatened marine species, threatened species in freshwater, wetlands, forest, mountains and threatened species associated with cultural landscapes will be halted and the status of declining species will be improved by 2020. 12
Environmental Target 2.6 Wild stocks of anadromous salmonids (including their genetic diversity) will be viable. 12
Environmental Target 4.6 There will be 65 litters of lynx, 13 litters of brown bear and 3 litters of wolf a year, and 850–1200 breeding pairs of golden eagle. 12
Environmental Target 5.5 Viable populations of wild reindeer will be maintained within the natural range of the species in the southern half of Norway. 12
Environmental Target 5.6 There will be 39 litters of wolverine a year. 12
Environmental Target 6.5 By 2020, the diversity of habitat types in cultural landscapes will be maintained or restored; this will include safeguarding genetic diversity and important ecological functions and services. 13
Environmental Target 2.6 Wild stocks of anadromous salmonids (including their genetic diversity) will be viable. 13
