WWF calls on Parties to support implementation at COP 11 by:
1. Agreeing targets to increase funding from all sources including national budgets, international aid, and innovative financing mechanisms.
2. Integrating biodiversity into development by:
(a) ensuring the processes to develop the post-2015 Framework (the Millennium Development Goals beyond 2015) and the Sustainable Development Goals integrate and build on the Aichi Targets in their work.
(b) encouraging IPBES to promote understanding and political will to address biodiversity loss by ensuring that high-level decision makers and key government sectors are included among their priority target audiences.
3. Approving and promoting mechanisms including indicators, regional partnerships and capacity building to support delivery on the ground.
4. Endorsing the reports of regional workshops to identify Ecologically and Biologically Significant Marine Areas (EBSA), including them in the CBD EBSA Repository and submitting them to the United Nations General Assembly.
WWF looks forward to supporting the implementation of the convention at COP 11 by working with governments and other partners to showcase innovative solutions for implementation and to promote effective CBD decisions.
