The state of biodiversity in the Caribbean community: a review of progress towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets

This report gives an assessment of progress towards each of the Convention on Biological Diversity’s 20 Aichi Biodiversity Targets, as a basis for the development of common strategies building on each member’s priorities and needs. It provides key information given the relative lack of baseline data and related time-bound objectively quantifiable targets for the Caribbean region, and is of particular value given the dependence on natural resources for livelihoods and well-being, and thus exposure to disruption and environmental disasters, of communities in many SIDS and developing countries in the region.
