Aichi Biodiversity Targets
 

 

With the decline in biodiversity continuing to escalate, much discussion is taking place on how to scale-up progress towards implementing the Aichi Targets and ensure the post-2020 global biodiversity framework has more robust monitoring and evaluation systems, to show progress towards halting biodiversity loss and guide conservation actions, particularly at the national level.  While decades of work developing the IUCN Red List Index has provided us with a clear indicator of progress towards Aichi Target 12 in particular, our ability to monitor the effectiveness of conservation responses on the ground is less well established.   
 
To make the best use of limited resources for conserving biodiversity, it is vital that the conservation sector identify and prioritise the most effective solutions. This requires conservationists to effectively evaluate, communicate and learn from their experiences. One monitoring tool already being used for this in the conservation sector is PRISM (www.conservationevaluation.org).
 
This side event will discuss both PRISM and several other monitoring tools that can track progress towards the achievement of conservation successes on the ground. The event will start with a review of the state of biodiversity conservation, followed by how PRISM is being and can be used to track conservation interventions on the ground, as supported by Toyota. Case studies from Africa, Asia and around the world will highlight these innovations and initiatives.
 
Proposed format:
BirdLife International – Aichi Target 12 and what the IUCN Red List, State of the World’s Birds and the State of Africa’s Birds tell us
Iain Dickson, BirdLife International – PRISM as a tool for testing conservation approaches on the ground and building evaluation capacity within conservation organisations (illustrated through global examples from the PRISM toolkit)
NatureUganda – Development of a theory of change for conservation in practice
BirdLife Zimbabwe – Application of PRISM on the ground for bird conservation
Toyota – Support of the IUCN Red List and PRISM for conservation outcomes as a part of a broader Corporate Social Responsibility commitment
Panel discussion on using tools such as PRISM to track conservation successes at the local level, building towards a national and international picture
