World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organizations, is making a concerted effort to contribute to the post-2020 area-based conservation (ABC) targets that are likely to be adopted by the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in 2021 or 2022. To this end, WWF-US is establishing a new initiative on 30x30. It has developed new principles for its ABC approach, is currently deeply reviewing ABC in selected landscapes and seascapes, and is scaling up its efforts to work with teams in its priority places to enhance ABC for nature and nature’s services to people for current and future conditions. This important work takes a science-based approach and includes improved management effectiveness of protected areas and other effective area-based conservation measures (OECMs); renovation of degraded areas; redesign of both landscapes/seascapes and individual areas; and expansion to new areas. Throughout this work, WWF ensures an inclusive, equitable approach that respects the rights and aspirations of Indigenous peoples and local communities. The programs promote sound governance practices, support populations in reaping enhanced benefits from their localities while adapting to changing conditions such as climate change and withstanding unwelcome external threats to biodiversity and ecosystem services.
