Table 3.1 Strategic Plan scorecard

An overview of progress made towards each of the objectievs of the Stategic Plan, as indicated by the number of dark stars. The assess-ment is indicative only, is based on the analysis prepared for the Working Group on Review of Implementation of the Convention, and is consistent with the conclusions of the Working Group regarding the state of implementation of the four goals of the Strategic Plan.
GOAL 1: The Convention is fulfilling its leadership role in international biodiversity issues.
1.1 The Convention is setting the global biodiversity agenda. ***
1.2 The Convention is promoting cooperation between all relevant international instruments and processes to enhance policy coherence. ****
1.3 Other international processes are actively supporting implementation of the Convention, in a manner consistent with their respective frameworks. ***
1.4 The Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety is widely implemented. ***
1.5 Biodiversity concerns are being integrated into relevant sectoral or cross-sectoral plans, programmes and policies at the regional and global levels. **
1.6 Parties are collaborating at the regional and subregional levels to implement the Convention. *
GOAL 2: Parties have improved financial, human, scientific, technical, and technological capacity to implement the Convention.
2.1 All Parties have adequate capacity for implementation of priority actions in national biodiversity strategy and action plans. **
2.2 Developing country Parties, in particular least developed countries (LDCs) and small island developing States (SIDS) amongst them, and other Parties with economies in transition, have sufficient resources available to implement the three objectives of the Convention. *
2.3 Developing country Parties, in particular LDCs and SIDS amongst them, and other Parties with economies in transition, have increased resources and technology transfer available to implement the Cartagena Protocol. *
2.4 All Parties have adequate capacity to implement the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety. *
2.5 Technical and scientific cooperation is making a significant contribution to building capacity. **
GOAL 3: NBSAPs and the integration of biodiversity concerns into relevant sectors serve as an effective framework for the implementation of the objectives of the Convention.
3.1 Every Party has effective NBSAPs in place to provide a national framework for implementing the three objectives of the Convention and to set clear national priorities. ***
3.2 Every Party to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety has a regulatory framework in place and this is functioning to the Protocol.implement **
3.3 Biodiversity concerns are being integrated into relevant national sectoral and cross-sectoral plans, programmes and policies. *
3.4 The priorities in NBSAPs are being actively implemented as a means to achieve national implementation of the Convention, and as a significant contribution towards the global biodiversity agenda. *
GOAL 4: There is a better understanding of the importance of biodiversity and of the Convention, and this has led to broader engagement across society in implementation.
4.1 All Parties are implementing a communication, education, and public awareness strategy and promoting public participation in support of the Convention. **
4.2 Every Party to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety is promoting and facilitating public awareness, education and participation in support of the Protocol. *
4.3 Indigenous and local communities are effectively involved in implementation and in the processes of the Convention, at national, regional and international levels. **
4.4 Key actors and stakeholders, including the private sector, are engaged in partnerships to implement the Convention and are integrating biodiversity concerns into relevant sectoral and cross-sectoral plans, programmes and policies. *
