The Japan Biodiversity Fund was created to support developing countries to develop capacity to:

  • Implement Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011 – 2020 and the Aichi Biodiversity Targets
  • Revise their National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plans (NBSAPs) in accordance with the Strategic Plan
  • Strengthen their capacity to implement the Convention

These funds, and those provided by other donors, will allow the Secretariat to enhance its support to Parties for implementation of the Convention, to improve coherence among the various initiatives under the convention, and to strengthen cooperation with partner organizations
