Sustainable Resource Management

Sustainable Resource Management

Aichi Biodiversity Target Seven – Sustainable Resource Management – focuses on sustainable agriculture, aquaculture and forestry. It states: By 2020, areas under agriculture, aquaculture and forestry are managed sustainably, ensuring conservation of biodiversity. 

Current levels and systems of production and consumption of food, fiber and fuel are unsustainable in many areas, leading to a long-term loss in ecosystem productivity and biodiversity, and the impairment of ecosystem services. Sustainable resource management ensures that the use of biodiversity and ecosystem components does not lead to long-term declines. Sustainable management of agriculture, aquaculture and forestry can minimize biodiversity losses, while providing a range of long-term benefits. These include improving soil fertility, controlling erosion, enhancing pollination, reducing disease and contributing to sustainable livelihoods. To achieve Target Seven, countries will need to assess the extent to which existing forests, agricultural and aquaculture operations are under sustainable management; prioritize these areas based on their impacts to biodiversity and ecosystems services; and identify appropriate policies for fostering sustainable management. This includes, for example, developing national guidelines for sustainable management, promoting independent certification, and removing subsidies for unsustainable practices. 

Target 7 indicators may include status and trends in: 

  • Area of forestry, agriculture and aquaculture under sustainable management
  • Proportions of products derived and marketed from sustainably managed sources
