The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is dedicated to promoting sustainable development. It recognizes the conservation and management of biological diversity is an integral part of the development process and is not simply a matter of protection. A revised and updated ten-year Strategic Plan for Biodiversity was adopted at the 10th Conference of the Parties (COP) in 2010. This plan provides an overarching framework on biodiversity for the entire United Nations system and all other partners engaged in biodiversity management and policy development.COP15 in 2020 is expected to update the Convention’s strategic plan and adopt a post-2020 global biodiversity framework for the next decade.
Among the primary and persistent challenges of the CBD Strategic Plan has been in fulfilling the promise of Target 20 on resource mobilization or, essentially, financing the plan. In recent years, a great deal of progress has been made at adapting traditional tools to the specific requirements of green and blue finance. International and national public and private sector initiatives, academic researchers and implementing organizations are developing, testing and adapting finance tools to bridge the local, national and global biodiversity investment gap.
Scope and Potential Topics
This Special Issue hopes to highlight current work in the measurement and implementation of biodiversity finance solutions globally. Papers are sought that illustrate successful blue and green finance solutions to biodiversity management challenges. Successful submissions will explore solutions that highlight one or more of the following:
• improvements in the design of finance mechanisms and programs to address biodiversity investments,
• means to mainstream biodiversity and ecosystem service outcomes into public and private sector accounting systems,
• policy implementation to avoid biodiversity loss,
• climate, gender, and/or indigenous people inclusive policy and program design,
• solutions that result in more financial resources mobilized, and
• success stories and failures in Biodiversity Finance Solutions
