Reaching Conservation Goals – A Vision of Hope
This stream will demonstrate that a well-planned and managed protected area system is essential to conservation. It will profile those people, places and organisations leading the way to conservation success, and provide examples of leadership, creative thinking and optimism, showing that conservation goals are achievable. The output will be a template of how Aichi Biodiversity Target 11, of conserving at least 17% of terrestrial and inland water and 10% of coastal and marine areas could be achieved, also reporting on progress made to date. New standards for an effective and equitable protected area system will be proposed, concluding with a look at the future: if the Aichi Targets are for 2020, what should the ultimate conservation targets look like?
