Objectif 16: La mobilisation de ressources adéquates de toutes provenances, destinées à une mise en œuvre effective du Plan stratégique pour les espèces migratrices, a effectivement augmenté sensiblement.


Significant funding provided by national governments and international agencies is available for species conservation. In addition, some global funds are available for threatened species conservation through the Darwin Initiative; Save Our Species fund; the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund; the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund; several Funds under the United States Fish and Wildlife Service International Programmes and many private Foundations.


The Global Environment Facility (GEF), although it is not a financial mechanism for CMS, is an important source of funding for migratory species conservation. CMS COP Resolution 11.10 (2014) on Synergies and Partnerships points out that CMS Parties can submit their funding needs for the conservation of migratory species at national level that are in line with SPMS and Aichi targets to GEF through the CBD Secretariat to shape GEF Strategies and elated replenishments.


Cooperation (at all levels e.g. south-south and north-south) through exchange of resources, technology, and knowledge as well as good practice in financing is an essential tool.
