Regional Workshop on the Implementation of Aichi Target 11 in the ASEAN
by Mr. Yew Aun Quek

On the 30th of July 2018, the Ministry of Water, Land and Natural Resources (KATS) sent a delegation to represent Malaysia at the Regional Workshop on the Implementation of Aichi Target 11 in the ASEAN organized by the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB). The workshop was held in Manila, Philippines from the 29th July to 2nd August and was attended by officials from ASEAN Member States (AMS) and regional Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).

Target 11 reads as following:

"By 2020, at least 17 per cent of terrestrial and inland water, and 10 per cent of coastal and marine areas, especially areas of particular importance for biodiversity and ecosystem services, are conserved through effectively and equitably managed, ecologically representative and well-connected systems of protected areas and other effective area-based conservation measures, and integrated into the wider landscapes and seascapes."

At the regional workshop, the Malaysian delegation discussed about the current status of Protected Areas, projections and actions underlined by Malaysia's National Policy on Biological Diversity 2016-2025. The sessions allowed ASEAN delegates to share information and network with professionals working in Protected Area Management.

This workshop was followed by a Meeting on Target Setting for the ASEAN Strategic Plan on Environment (ASPEN) 2016-2025. AMS representatives reviewed the current draft and suggested edits guided by respective biodiversity policies (National Biodiversity Strategic Action Plans – NBSAP).
