Call for advice from the IPPC contracting parties concerning the funding of national priorities for Aichi Biodiversity Targets

Action: The IPPC Secretariat is calling for any points on “elements of advice from the IPPC contracting parties concerning the funding of national priorities”, for the preparation of proposals for a four-year outcome-oriented framework of programme priorities for the eighth replenishment period (July 2022 to June 2026) of the GEF Trust Fund, aligned with the draft post-2020 global biodiversity framework, for consideration by the COP at its fifteenth meeting in 2020.

The IPPC is one of the Biodiversity-related conventions together with the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Biodiversity-related conventions work to implement actions at the national, regional and international level in order to reach shared goals of conservation and sustainable use.

The Conference of the Parties (COP) to the CBD at its twelfth and thirteenth meetings COP considered enhancing programmatic synergies among biodiversity-related conventions in its agenda item on the financial mechanism. In decision XII/30 the COP invited the governing bodies of the various biodiversity-related conventions to provide advice concerning the funding of implementation priorities of the conventions, that were aligned with the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, and that could be referred to the Global Environment Facility (GEF) by the COP in its guidance to the GEF.

At its fourteenth meeting, in decision 14/23 the COP noted that the biodiversity programming directions for the seventh replenishment of the GEF Trust Fund reflected the guidance it adopted at its thirteenth meeting, which included the consolidated guidance to the financial mechanism and the four­ year framework of programme priorities (July 2018 to June 2022), as well as further guidance.

Deadline: 01 February 2020
