Targets, indicators, monitoring and assessment

This section sets out the obligations on Parties relating to targets and indicators for sustainable use and the monitoring and assessment of such use. The obligations that are concerned with monitoring and reporting the trade in wild species (Activities 6 & 7) are all derived from CITES. All other obligations in this section originate in CBD. In connection with sub-target 4.3 of the CBD’s 2010 framework (‘No species of wild flora or fauna threatened by international trade’) there is potential for activities carried out under the auspices of CITES to contribute significantly to this target.
