National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs)

Quick Guides for the Aichi Biodiversity Targets

A set of informal "Quick Guides" covering each of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, is being prepared. Additional guides are being developed and will be added as they become available. Please regard these guides as preliminary versions as it is envisaged that they will be periodically updated in the light of experiences and any comments received.

This set of guides for the Aichi Biodiversity Targets aims to provide Parties and other stakeholders with an introduction to each of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets by quickly explaining key terms, highlighting implications for national target setting, providing guiding questions for national target setting, providing ideas for preliminary national actions, identifying possible indicators to monitor progress and identifying further resources. The guides make no attempt to reinterpret what is contained in decision X/2 (Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020) but are meant to serve as a resource that Parties and other stakeholders may wish to consider as they set national targets in support of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets.

The Secretariat would welcome any feedback on the use of the target guides and suggestions for their improvement. Please send comments to
