Target 3: By 2020, at the latest, biodiversity values have been integrated into national and local development and poverty reduction strategies



 

Strategic Goal A: Address the underlying causes of biodiversity loss by mainstreaming biodiversity across government and society

Target 3

2020, at the latest, incentives, including subsidies, harmful to biodiversity are eliminated, phased out or reformed in order to minimize or avoid negative impacts, and positive incentives for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity are developed and applied, consistent and in harmony with the Convention and other relevant international obligations, taking into account
national socio economic conditions.

Proposed National targets

  • Identify/document  and analyse the current  negative  incentives by 2015
