Author Commentary 1

Ramsar Resolution VIII.23, 8 Ramsar Resolution VII.7, 8 Both address legal arrangements for incentive measures, with the latter being more specific. Both could complement, for wetlands, CBD Decision III/18, 3 on the same issue.

Author Commentary 2

Ramsar Resolution VIII.34, 19 on positive and Ramsar Resolution VIII.34, 21 on negative incentives are together similar to CBD Decision VII/4, Annex.

Ramsar Resolution VII.8, 21, with the additional aspect of financial mechanisms, builds on Ramsar Resolution VII.15, 13.

Author Commentary 6

CBD Decision VII/4, 7 CBD Decision VII/4, Annex Goal 2.3 of the revised programme of work on inland water biodiversity asks to provide the appropriate incentives and valuation measures to support the conservation and sustainable use of inland water biodiversity, and to remove, or reform, perverse incentives opposing such conservation and sustainable use of ecosystems.

Author Commentary 7

CBD Decision VII/12, 2 CBD Decision VII/12, Annex II Practical principle 3 of the Addis Ababa Principles and Guidelines for Sustainable Use of Biodiversity asks for identification and removal or mitigation of international and national policies, laws and regulations that distort markets, which contribute to habitat degradation or otherwise generate perverse incentives. Practical principle 10 states that international and national policies should take into account current and potential values derived from the use of biodiversity, intrinsic and other non-economic values of biodiversity, and market forces affecting the values and use.
