Focal Area and Cross Cutting Strategies – Biodiversity

  • GEF Expanded Constituency Workshop
  • April 5 – 7, 2011
  • Da Lat, Vietnam

Biodiversity

  • Goal: the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and the maintenance of ecosystem goods and services
    • Convention on Biological Diversity
gef achievements in biodiversity
GEF Achievements in Biodiversity
  • $ 3.1 billion invested, $8.3 billion in cofinancingto support more than 1,000 projects in 155 countries
  • $1.89 billion invested in the creation and management of protected areas
  • Catalyzed the achievement of the target of 10% of the world’s terrestrial areas under protection: 2,302 protected areas spanning 634 million hectares, 700 globally threatened species, 30 billion tons of stored carbon
  • 40 conservation trust funds supported with $300 million
  • Over 265 million hectares of productive landscapes and seascapes became biodiversity-friendly
  • Largest financier of forests: $1.5 billion supplemented by more than $4.5 billion in cofinancing; more than 300 projects focusing on forest conservation and management
  • Pioneer investor in payments for ecosystem services schemes
  • Supported National Biosafety Frameworks in 123 countries
  • Enabled participation by civil society through the GEF Small Grants Program and the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund

5 Biodiversity Strategy Objectives

  • improve the sustainability of protected area systems
    • Improve Sustainable Financing of Protected Area Systems:
    • Expand Marine and Terrestrial Ecosystem Representation:
    • Expand Threatened Species Representation:
    • Improve Management Effectiveness of Existing Protected
  • mainstream biodiversity conservation and sustainable use into production landscapes/ seascapes and sectors
    • Strengthen Policy and Regulatory Frameworks:
    • Implement Invasive Alien Species Management Frameworks:
    • Produce Biodiversity-friendly Goods and Services:
  • build capacity to implement the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety
    • Single-country projects:
    • Regional or sub-regional projects:
    • Thematic projects:
  • build capacity on access to genetic resources and benefit-sharing
    • capacity building of governments for meeting their obligations under Article 15 of the CBD
    • building capacity within key stakeholder groups
  • integrate CBD obligations into national planning processes through enabling activities
    • Enabling activity support could be provided for revising NBSAPs in line with the CBD’s new strategic plan
    • implementation of guidance related to the Clearing House

Biodiversity Portfolio Monitoring

  • Goal: Conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and the maintenance of ecosystem goods and services.
  • Impacts:
  • Biodiversity conserved and habitat maintained in national protected area systems.
  • Conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity integrated into production landscapes and seascapes.
  • Indicators:
  • Intact vegetative cover and degree of fragmentation in national protected area systems measured in hectares as recorded by remote sensing.
  • Intact vegetative cover and degree of fragmentation in production landscapes measured in hectares as recorded by remote sensing.
  • Coastal zone habitat (coral reef, mangroves, etc) intact in marine protected areas and productive seascapes measured in hectares
