The selection of this national target is based on its relevance to the issue of financing the strategic and targets action plans. Mobilizing financial resources inside Sudan is challenged by low tax revenues and high government expenditures on security, economic development of productive and service sectors that depend largely on the existing degraded natural resources. The selection of the target provides clues to tap new innovative measures and mechanisms for mobilizing needed financial resources.
Aichi Target 20: By 2020, at the latest, the mobilization of financial resources for effectively implementing the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 from all sources, and in accordance with the consolidated and agreed process in the Strategy for Resource Mobilization, should increase substantially from the current levels. This target will be subject to changes contingent to resource needs assessments to be developed and reported by Parties
