Aim of the Partnership
To provide a framework to facilitate harmony between existing initiatives aimed at plant conservation, identify gaps where new initiatives are required, and promote mobilization of the necessary resources.
The proposed activities of the Partnership include, to:
- support the Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Parties and the flexible coordination mechanism for the Strategy to implement the strategy and help monitor progress in the achievement of the 16 outcome targets by 2010;
- promote the implementation of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation through the activities and initiatives of its members, other partners and associated networks;
- support the development and implementation of national and regional strategies for plant conservation and strengthen integration of the elements and targets of the strategy into sectoral and institutional programmes and initiatives.
- assist in the development and dissemination of relevant models with protocols for plant conservation, best practices and case studies and provide relevant scientific and technical tools where available, for the implementation of the strategy;
- establish a web-based portal on plant conservation worldwide, as a resource for interaction and communication between initiatives and organisations active in plant conservation, working in close collaboration with the Clearing House Mechanism of the CBD;
- identify gaps where new initiatives are required
- support capacity building initiatives for plant conservation especially in developing countries;
- facilitate education and public awareness on plant conservation and the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation;
- maximise and mobilise existing and new resources to support the implementation of the Strategy at all levels;
