Partners Roundtable on Achieving the Aichi Targets through Integrated Coastal Management

ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity and Partnership in Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia

Date and Time
13 October 2014 18:15 - 19:45

Twelfth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity

The Roundtable with Donors and Partners will feature the joint initiative of the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity and the Partnership for Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia in supporting efforts in South East and East Asia to achieve the Aichi Biodiversity targets through integrated coastal management. The joint initiative of PEMSEA and ACB will focus on scaling-up the coverage and effectiveness of Marine Conservation Areas and Threatened Species Protection. Partners and donors will be engaged in the discussion and possible joint collaboration supporting the following key areas: 1) scaling up the coverage and resilience of habitat building species, namely mangroves, seagrasses and coral reefs in areas of globally significant biodiversity and ecosystem services (Aichi Target 11); 2) preventing the extinction of known marine threatened species (e.g., Chinese White Dolphin, Irrawaddy Dolphin, Humphead Wrasse, etc.) as a contribution to Aichi Target 12; 3) improving the ability of ecosystems to retain their services and adapt to climate changes (Aichi Target 10); and 4) sustaining natural marine resource-based livelihoods and eco-businesses. Hosted by the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries of the Republic of Korea and co-organized by PEMSEA and ACB in collaboration with the CBD Secretariat, the roundtable will also kick-off a partnership under the LifeWeb Initiative to mobilize support to implementation of NBSAPs and related PoWPA processes of the participating countries in South East and East Asia.
