The recent strategic plan of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and its Aichi-Targets will end in 2020. For the time period past 2020 CBD already took steps to plan for a follow-up strategy. As Germany will hold the EU-Presidency in the second half of 2020 there is a high interest to accompany the preparation process of a post 2020 strategy. Therefore, the aim of the project is to analyze the content and structure recent strategic plan and its targets in order to develop concrete and realistic proposals for a continuation or, if necessary, further development of the strategic plan, or a new target system respectively. These proposals will be discussed with national stakeholders during a workshop to be held in Berlin on April 12/13th, 2018.
