The Target 11 Partnership
aims to facilitate the achievement of Aichi Biodiversity Target 11 with its attendant multiple benefits through decentralized implementation of focused actions, in a concerted manner, with comprehensive coordination among all relevant partners. The Conference of the Parties to the Convention, in paragraph 9(d) of decision XIII/2
, invited Parties, other governments, relevant partners, regional agencies, bilateral and multilateral funding agencies, in conjunction with the Secretariat to, inter alia, facilitate support networks at the regional and sub-regional level.
With only two years remaining to achieve the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, the Target 11 Partnership provides a platform for all committed Parties and partners to express their intent and reiterate their commitments to achieve Aichi Biodiversity Target 11 by 2020. The Partnership serves to stimulate regional implementation support networks of partners, including donors, to align their activities with national priority actions to facilitate effective implementation and the achievement of Target 11. With the envisaged alignment of activities and funding through this Partnership, partners can reinforce their on-going efforts, energy and resources to reach, or surpass Target 11 within the next two years.
