Act30, a new initiative to conserve 30% of our planet guided by Indigenous Peoples’ knowledge

News | California, United States of America, 14 March.- The International Indigenous Forum on Biodiversity (IIFB), together with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the tech company Esri, held a planning meeting in Redlands, California, to set the next steps on the development of Act30.

Act30 is a global initiative that brings together governments, Indigenous Peoples, and local communities to map diverse and effective pathways to conserve 30% of our planet for future generations.

This initiative addresses Target 3 of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (KMGBF), which calls for the Conservation of 30% of the world´s land, waters and seas by 2030. To help progress this target, countries are expected to expand and enhance both protected and conserved areas, for safeguarding habitats and populations of species, while recognizing and respecting the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities, including over their traditional territories.

Co-designed and co-delivered by IIFB, IUCN, IUCN IPO, and Esri, the initiative aims to transform KMGBF Target 3 from a global ambition to a national and local reality, backed by the knowledge of indigenous peoples as stewards of biodiversity, scientific evidence and mapping technology.

Act30 partners with countries to build and implement road maps for biodiversity conservation that are effective, participatory, and equitable. The road maps are uniquely built with a 3D approach using IUCN’s world-renowned global network of technical expertise, IIFB’s unrivalled resources of traditional knowledge, and Esri’s advanced geospatial technology.

Our collective future depends on achieving harmony with nature. Now is the time to Act30.
