Title: Implementation Guide for Aichi Target 2: A TEEB perspective

Publication date: October 2012

Prepared by: Julian Rode, Heidi Wittmer, Gibran Watfe.

Summary: The TEEB guides, developed by the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ on behalf of the German Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN), focus specifically on three of the co-called ‘Aichi Targets’; a set of 20 biodiversity goals agreed by governments under the CBD in 2010. Aichi Target 2 is the integration of biodiversity values into strategies for development and poverty reduction, planning processes and national accounting. The guides provide practical support for national governments, regional policy-makers, and other groups in making use of the findings of TEEB to support efforts to achieve the Aichi targets by 2020.
