Uganda - 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.

National Target By 2017, traditional knowledge and practices of local communities integrated into biodiversity conservation and sustainable use at all levels. 18
Strategic Objective 3 To reduce and manage negative impacts while enhancing positive impacts on biodiversity
National Target By 2020, at least 17% of terrestrial and inland water ecosystems in Uganda are conserved through effectively and equitably managed, ecologically representative and well-connected systems of protected areas for socio-economic benefit of the population. 11
National Target By 2020, ecosystem resilience and the contribution of biodiversity to carbon stocks has been enhanced, through conservation and restoration, including restoration of at least 15%of degraded ecosystems, thereby contributing to climate change mitigation and adaptation and to combating desertification. 15
National Target By 2020, the extinction of known threatened species has been prevented and their conservation status, particularly of vulnerable species, has been improved and sustained. 12
National Target By 2020, the genetic diversity of cultivated plants and farmed animals including their wild relatives and other socio-economically valuable species conserved and strategies developed and implemented for minimizing genetic erosion and safeguarding their genetic diversity. 13
National Target By 2020, the rate of loss of all natural habitats, including forests, is at least halved and where feasible brought close to zero, and degradation and fragmentation is significantly reduced. 5, 14
National Target By 2020, management plans are in place for areas under agriculture, aquaculture and forestry to ensure sustainable biodiversity conservation. 7
National Target By 2020, pollution, including from excess nutrients, has been brought to levels that are not detrimental to ecosystem function and biodiversity. 8
National Target By 2020, invasive alien species and pathways are identified and prioritized, priority species are controlled or eradicated, and measures are in place to manage pathways to prevent their introduction and establishment. 9
National Target By 2020, the impacts of fisheries activities on stocks, species and ecosystems are within safe ecological limits. 6
National Target By 2020, all fish and invertebrate stocks and aquatic plants are managed and harvested sustainably, legally and applying ecosystem based approaches, so that overfishing is avoided, recovery plans and measures are in place for all depleted species. 6
