This note presents, in the annex, the information underpinning the analysis/synthesis presented in document CBD/SBI/2/2/Add.2. For each Party national progress towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, based on information presented in the fifth national reports is indicated as well as the extent to which the national targets or similar commitments contained in the revised or updated national biodiversity strategies and action plans correspond to the global aspirations set out in the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. It is important to note that the assessment of the national targets in the NBSAPs was conducted considering the scope and level of ambition of the national target against that of the Aichi Target. It did not consider the national circumstances of a country. Therefore some targets, which when compared to the Aichi Target, are lower than the Aichi Target may nonetheless be ambitious in light of a country’s starting point. Similar it is important to note that the information derived from the national reports in this assessment reflects the anticipated level of progress at the end of the Aichi Target date based on the status and actions taken to date. As such the categories indicate the current trajectory of progress and assume that this remains unchanged between the time of the assessment and the target date. Further this assessment does not consider national circumstances or baselines. For these reasons, the information presented in this document cannot be used to compare progress among countries. It is only suitable to generating a global picture of progress towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets.
