Biodiversité

La Plateforme pour la prise en compte systématique de la biodiversité

La conservation, l'utilisation durable, la gestion et la restauration de la diversité biologique dans un seul pays peuvent être une tâche herculéenne. Dès lors, comment de telles actions peuvent-elles être intégrées aux différents secteurs ?
 
C'est dans cet esprit et en collaboration avec la Convention sur la diversité biologique, d'autres organisations des Nations Unies et des partenaires, que la FAO dirige la Plateforme pour la prise en compte systématique de la biodiversité afin de faciliter ce processus. Son objectif est de faire en sorte que les bonnes pratiques soient adoptées dans tous les secteurs de l’agriculture et qu’il y ait un échange des idées aux niveaux national, régional et international.
 
La plateforme répond au besoin de créer des ponts entre le secteur de l'agriculture et celui de l'environnement. Elle s'emploie à identifier les synergies et à rapprocher les objectifs de ces secteurs et à développer des approches intégrées de la biodiversité dans l'agriculture, la foresterie, la pêche et l'aquaculture.
 
Au niveau mondial, la plateforme sensibilisera à l’importance de la biodiversité dans tous les secteurs de l’agriculture, tout en favorisant le dialogue sur des questions clés telles que les politiques, les mesures, les pratiques et la planification territoriale. Ce faisant, la plateforme facilitera l'engagement continu des parties prenantes.

Au niveau régional, en facilitant le dialogue entre les multiples parties prenantes régionales et nationales dans la promotion de pratiques durables en matière d’agriculture, de foresterie et de pêche, la plateforme aidera les pays à inclure la biodiversité dans leurs plans agricoles nationaux et à mettre en œuvre des instruments politiques mondiaux pour intégrer la biodiversité.

Partner and stakeholder engagement

In May 2018, FAO co-organized with the CBD Secretariat the Multi-stakeholder dialogue on biodiversity mainstreaming across the agricultural sectors. The Dialogue, which was held in Rome, brought together about 250 ministers, policy makers, experts, and representatives from inter-governmental organizations, private groups and civil society.

FAO Strategy on Mainstreaming Biodiversity across Agricultural Sectors

The FAO strategy on mainstreaming biodiversity was approved at the FAO Conference in 2019, in view of preparations for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.

To deliver the FAO strategy, the Platform organized with the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, a set of regional dialogues to consult with different stakeholders and to give the Strategy a global perspective, as recommended at the 161st Session of the FAO Council.

Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC)

29-30 October 2018. At the High-level regional dialogue on the mainstreaming of biodiversity in the agricultural, forestry and fisheries sectors (DRANIBA), the following recommendations for an LAC Action Plan emerged: 

To create or promote a food initiative based on product diversification; incorporate biodiversity criteria and indicators into food systems; develop a platform of indicators or evaluation criteria to measure the progress of the integration of biodiversity in the agriculture sectors; involve ministries of finance in the formulation of plans and programs to integrate biodiversity as a strategy for human well-being; and identify and value the economic, social and cultural contribution of biodiversity and ecosystems.

The event raised awareness on the importance of biodiversity mainstreaming across agricultural sectors, and was a chance to exchange knowledge and experiences and share lessons learned on biodiversity mainstreaming in countries within the region, fostering mutual learning among different stakeholders.

Executive summary and recommendations

 

 


Near East and North Africa

3-5 November 2019. The objective of the regional dialogue on biodiversity mainstreaming across agricultural sectors in the Near East and North Africa region was to review the draft of the FAO Strategy on Biodiversity Mainstreaming across Agricultural Sectors, and provide FAO with a perspective from the region.

The participants emphasized the need for greater focus on invasive species and pollinators. They confirmed that the economic value of the ecosystem services provided by biodiversity should be estimated and that there should be a regional study on climate change.
