These are: development of models with protocols for plant conservation and sustainable use, based on research and practical experience (Target iii); no species of wild flora endangered by international trade (Target xi); 30 per cent of plant-based products derived from sources that are sustainably managed (Target xii); The decline of plant resources, and associated indigenous and local knowledge, innovations and practices that support sustainable livelihoods, local food security and health care, halted (Target xiii).
