Aichi Biodiversity Targets



The conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity where people live and use play a critical role in the sustainable development of the world with a growing human population. The quest for a society in harmony with nature from human-influenced natural environment emphasizes the promotion and proper management of socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes and the importance of traditional knowledge and future-fit form of co-management, as in the Satoyama Initiative (Decision X/32). Around the world, there are a great number of cases that demonstrated achievements. Cross learning and policy dialogue at local, national and international levels have provided a platform for mainstreaming of biodiversity into important sectors, such as agriculture, forestry and fisheries. The GEF-Satoyama Project and COMDEKS provide concrete examples of site-based actions linked to boarder-scale amplification.

This side event reviews how the activities under the Satoyama Initiative have been contributing to the achievement of Aichi Biodiversity Targets and thus to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and discusses how the socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes could contribute in the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.
