Developing a new Post 2020 Convention on Biodiversity Protected and Conserved Areas Target
OVERVIEW

At the tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), Governments adopted a Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011 - 2020, including the 20 Aichi Biodiversity Targets. Parties to the CBD, are in the process of deliberating a new global biodiversity framework beyond 2020.

This timely project will bring together perceptions from Experts in the field involved in conservation in protected and conserved areas; to inform discussions towards a transformative, ambitious and yet achievable Post-2020 spatial conservation target. Our analysis will focus on gaps and opportunities toward achieving Aichi Biodiversity Target 11 and lessons that can be learnt from the past to shape future spatial conservation targets.

This project seeks to contribute to discussions towards transformative change in spatial conservation and is being carried out with the University of Cambridge and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The organiser is Ms. Nobesuthu Ngwenya (MPhil Conservation Leadership student with the University of Cambridge and IUCN intern), working with Dr. Chris Sandbrook cgs21@cam.ac.uk and Ms. Natasha Ali natasha.ali@iucn.org

Conserved areas include areas other than a Protected Area, which are governed and managed in ways that achieve positive and sustained long-term outcomes for the in situ conservation of biodiversity, with associated ecosystem functions and services and where applicable, cultural, spiritual, socio–economic, and other locally relevant values'.
5. Protected and conserved areas in your country play an important role in biodiversity conservation and delivery of wider policy goals *
6. Please explain your answer to question 5 *
Your answer
7. In your own opinion, what are the challenges in ensuring protected and conserved areas are effective in conserving biodiversity in your country? *
Your answer
8. Protected and conserved areas in your country could be managed better *
9. How do you think the management of protected and conserved areas in your country could be improved? *
Your answer
10. Protected and conserved areas in your country are equitably governed *
11. Please explain your answer to question 10 *
Your answer
12. Equitable governance of protected and conserved areas in your country is necessary to achieve biodiversity conservation goals *
13. Protected and conserved area networks in your country need to be expanded to include additional areas important for biodiversity and ecosystem services *
14. Please explain your answer to 13 *
Your answer
Conserved areas include areas other than a Protected Area, governed and managed in ways that achieve positive and sustained long-term outcomes for the in situ conservation of biodiversity, with associated ecosystem functions and services and where applicable, cultural, spiritual, socio–economic, and other locally relevant values'.
15. The conserved area network in your country is well planned and managed *
16. Please explain your answer in 15 *
Your answer
17. All ecoregions are well represented in protected areas in your country *
18. Should connectivity of protected areas in your country be enhanced? *
19. What challenges could be faced in enhancing connectivity of protected areas in your country? *
Your answer
Ecosystem services refer to benefits obtained by people from natural environments such as water, food, carbon sequestration, recreation and educational value.
20. Are landscapes and or seascapes that provide ecosystem services valued as a means of achieving biodiversity conservation in your country *
21. Conservation funding bodies such as GEF are addressing the right issues in protected and conserved areas *
22. Where do you think future funding of bodies such as GEF should be focused? *
Your answer
Other effective area-based conservation measures (OECMs) are defined as -“A geographically defined area other than a Protected Area, which is governed and managed in ways that achieve positive and sustained long-term outcomes for the in situ conservation of biodiversity, with associated ecosystem functions and services and where applicable, cultural, spiritual, socio–economic, and other locally relevant values”. These are also known as conserved areas.
23. What are the opportunities for OECMs to contribute to conservation in your country? *
Your answer
Aichi target 11 reads: ‘by 2020, at least 17 percent of terrestrial and inland water areas and 10 per cent of coastal and marine areas, especially areas of particular importance for biodiversity and ecosystem services, are conserved through effectively and equitably managed, ecologically representative and well-connected systems of protected areas and other effective area-based conservation measures, and integrated into the wider landscape and seascape’
24. What do you think future global targets for protected areas should consider? *
Your answer
25. Would you be willing to take part in a follow up interview ? *
