SDG Target 15.8

SDG Target 15.8

By 2020, introduce measures to prevent the introduction and significantly reduce the impact of invasive alien species on land and water ecosystems and control or eradicate the priority species

Mapping with SPMS 2015-2023

CMS Target 2

Multiple values of migratory species and their habitats have been integrated into international, national and local development and poverty reduction strategies and planning processes, including on livelihoods, and are being incorporated into national accounting, as appropriate, and reporting systems.

TARGET 6. Reduce the Introduction of Invasive Alien Species by 50% and Minimize Their Impact

Eliminate, minimize, reduce and or mitigate the impacts of invasive alien species on biodiversity and ecosystem services by identifying and managing pathways of the introduction of alien species, preventing the introduction and establishment of priority invasive alien species, reducing the rates of introduction and establishment of other known or potential invasive alien species by at least 50 percent, by 2030, eradicating or controlling invasive alien species especially in priority sites, such as islands.

Headline indicator
  • 6.1 Rate of invasive alien species establishment
Component indicator
  • Rate of invasive species impact and rate of impact
  • Rate of invasive alien species spread
  • Number of invasive alien species introduction events
Complementary indicator
  • Number of invasive alien species in national lists as per the Global Register of Introduced and Invasive Species
  • Trends in abundance, temporal occurrence, and spatial distribution of non-indigenous species, particularly invasive, non-indigenous species, notably in risk areas (in relation to the main vectors and pathways of spreading of such species)
  • Red List Index (impacts of invasive alien species)

 

Mapping with 4th Ramsar Strategic Plan 2016-2024

Ramsar Target 4

Invasive alien species and pathways of introduction and expansion are identified and prioritized, priority invasive alien species are controlled or eradicated, and management responses are prepared and implemented to prevent their introduction and establishment.

Baseline
  • 36% of Parties have established national policies or guidelines on invasive species control and management. (National Reports to COP12).
  • 20% of Parties have a national inventory of invasive alien species that currently or potentially impact the ecological character of wetlands. (National Reports to COP12).
Indicator
  • % of Parties that have established or reviewed national policies or guidelines on invasive wetland species control and management. (Data source: National Reports).
  • % of Parties having a national inventory of invasive alien species that currently or potentially impact the ecological character of wetlands. (Data source: National Reports).

Possible further indicators that may be developed

  • {Number of invasive species that are being controlled through management actions}
  • {Effectiveness of wetland invasive alien species control programmes}

Mapping with CBD - Aichi Targets

Aichi Target 2

By 2020, at the latest, biodiversity values have been integrated into national and local development and poverty reduction strategies and planning processes and are being incorporated into national accounting, as appropriate, and reporting systems.

Aichi Target 9

By 2020, invasive alien species and pathways are identified and prioritized, priority species are controlled or eradicated, and measures are in place to manage pathways to prevent their introduction and establishment.

Aichi Target 12

By 2020 the extinction of known threatened species has been prevented and their conservation status, particularly of those most in decline, has been improved and sustained.
