Summarizing progress towards the achievement of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets


To date, in accordance with Article 6 of the Convention, 190 of 196 (97%) Parties have developed at least one NBSAP. More »

Aichi Biodiversity Target 17

By 2015, each Party has developed, adopted as a policy instrument, and has commenced implementing an effective, participatory and updated national biodiversity strategy and action plan.

Since COP-10, 162 Parties have submitted "post-Nagoya" NBSAPs: 141 Parties submitted revised versions (among these, 2 Parties completed their revisions prior to COP-10 however with consideration given to the draft Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and are therefore included in this number); 15 Parties submitted their first NBSAPs; 2 Parties submitted both their first NBSAP and a revised version; 2 Parties submitted two revised versions; 1 Party submitted an Action Plan to 2020 for enhancing implementation of its Strategy adopted before COP-10; and 1 Party submitted a first NBSAP developed in 2010 prior to COP-10.

These NBSAPs reflect varying degrees of compliance with the Nagoya outcomes.

  • Parties whose post-2010 NBSAP takes the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity (2011-2020) into account: 149

  • Parties whose post-2010 NBSAP does not take the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity (2011-2020) into account: 13

  • Parties who have not yet submitted a post-2010 NBSAP: 28

  • Parties that have not yet submitted an NBSAP: 6
