Conservation Letters: Setting robust biodiversity goals
The new global biodiversity framework (GBF) being developed under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) must drive action to reverse the ongoing decline of the Earth’s biodiversity, including explicit and measurable targets to set the course for those actions and the objectives for achieving those results.
Bernardo Strassburg is coauthor of a study that outlines seven principles to underpin outcome-oriented conservation goals at all levels, from global to local, which minimize the risk of perverse results. Including these seven principles in the outcome goals of the post-2020 GBF would mean several key changes to the current wording. However, these changes would be necessary to clarify the contribution of each action to the achievement of result goals and help in monitoring to assess progress toward the 2050 CBD vision”living in harmony with nature”.
