CBD Strategic Goal: B: Reduce the direct pressures on biodiversity and promote sustainable use
C: To improve the status of biodiversity by safeguarding ecosystems, species and genetic diversity
Main Aichi Biodiversity Target: Target 5: By 2020, the rate of loss of all natural habitats, including forests, is at least halved and where feasible brought close to zero, and degradation and fragmentation is significantly reduced.
Target 6: By 2020 all fish and invertebrate stocks and aquatic plants are managed and harvested sustainably, legally and applying ecosystem based approaches, so that overfishing is avoided, recovery plans and measures are in place for all depleted species, fisheries have no significant adverse impacts on threatened species and vulnerable ecosystems and the impacts of fisheries on stocks, species and ecosystems are within safe ecological limits.
Target 12: By 2020 the extinction of known threatened species has been prevented and their conservation status, particularly of those most in decline, has been improved and sustained.
Secondary Aichi Biodiversity Targets: Targets 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14
