  • Are we on track? Positive incentives and finance mobilised under Aichi Target 3 and 20
  • This side-event showcased existing data available on tracking economic incentives and the finance they mobilise, relevant to Aichi Target 3 and 20. Drawing on data reported to the OECD database on Policy Instruments for the Environment (PINE), which tracks information on more than 90 countries worldwide, it highlighted the data relevant to Aichi Target 3, namely biodiversity-relevant taxes, fees and charges, tradable permits and subsidies to promote biodiversity conservation and sustainable use. The side-event also highlighted other sources and trends in biodiversity finance, including biodiversity-relevant ODA and new initiatives to track domestic government budgets relevant to biodiversity as called for under the Paris Collaborative for Green Budgeting.
