This section provides further information on how to implement the individual targets of the GSPC. Click on the target numbers below, or use the left hand menu to move from target to target.
For each target the following information is available:
An online flora of all known plants.
An assessment of the conservation status of all known plant species, as far as possible, to guide conservation action.
Information, research and associated outputs, and methods necessary to implement the Strategy developed and shared.
At least 15 per cent of each ecological region or vegetation type secured through effective management and/or restoration.
At least 75 per cent of the most important areas for plant diversity of each ecological region protected with effective management in place for conserving plants and their genetic diversity.
At least 75 per cent of production lands in each sector managed sustainably, consistent with the conservation of plant diversity.
At least 75 per cent of known threatened plant species conserved in situ.
At least 75 per cent of threatened plant species in ex situ collections, preferably in the country of origin, and at least 20 per cent available for recovery and restoration programmes.
70 per cent of the genetic diversity of crops including their wild relatives and other socio-economically valuable plant species conserved, while respecting, preserving and maintaining associated indigenous and local knowledge.
Effective management plans in place to prevent new biological invasions and to manage important areas for plant diversity that are invaded.
No species of wild flora endangered by international trade.
All wild harvested plant-based products sourced sustainably.
Indigenous and local knowledge innovations and practices associated with plant resources, maintained or increased, as appropriate, to support customary use, sustainable livelihoods, local food security and health care.
The importance of plant diversity and the need for its conservation incorporated into communication, education and public awareness programmes.
The number of trained people working with appropriate facilities sufficient according to national needs, to achieve the targets of this Strategy.
Institutions, networks and partnerships for plant conservation established or strengthened at national, regional and international levels to achieve the targets of this Strategy.
