The project objective is to support country planning to inclusively and effectively meet or exceed GBF Target 3. Project partners will develop an easily accessible guide to developing inclusive and effective national level plans to achieve Target 3. In five countries, the project will support a series of in-country consultations and workshops with a wide range of stakeholders relating to GBF Target 3 to discuss local-to-national level priorities, review data, analyze gaps and develop national plans. As part of this, project partners will support in-country assessment and documentation of baseline data and gaps assessments relating to enabling conditions for Target 3, setting out what exists and what additional data are required to support work towards Target 3 and then facilitating analysis of those findings to address selected, prioritized (non-exhaustive) data or knowledge gaps. These activities and outputs will feed into broader multi-stakeholder consultations about local-to-national priorities for Target 3, designed to be inclusive, with a focus on right-based approaches to conservation, and planning for effective, connected and climate resilient systems of PAs and OECMs. This will result in 5 national plans for achieving or exceeding GBF Target 3.
