Side Event 2424: Learning from the past to inform the 2050 Vision: improving target setting, assessing progress and applying the Agrobiodiversity Index

3 July 2018, 18:15-19:45, Room D

The 25th anniversary of the entry into force of the Convention on Biological Diversity provides an opportunity to critically assess the targets set for the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and the effectiveness of measures taken under the convention and its strategic plans.

This joint event by Bioversity International, BirdLife International (RSPB) and UNEP-WCMC will present information generated from assessing these aspects that could inform development of a follow up to the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 which is expected to be adopted at CBD COP-15 in 2020.

It will also present the Agrobiodiversity Index – a tool to measure and manage agrobiodiversity in sustainable food systems, and how it can be applied to measuring country and company commitments to, and actions in persuit of, progressing multiple Aichi Biodiversity Targets.
