Mapping landscape guidelines and principles to the Aichi targets

Mapping landscape guidelines and principles to the Aichi targets

Key Points

  • The 10 principles of a landscape approach are designed to assist managers in making decisions involving multiple or competing land uses.
  • The principles were “taken note of” during the CBD COP in Hyderabad in 2011 and referenced as a valuable tool during the 17th SBSTTA meeting in Montreal, October 2013.
  • The 17th SBSTTA also highlighted the complexity of land-management decisions and called for tools to assist parties in working toward the Aichi targets.
  • Application of the principles has the potential to contribute to a number of the Aichi targets, particularly those under strategic goals D and E.
  • The next steps for the targets must be to generate greater awareness among parties, to demonstrate value and improve uptake.
