Target 24: By 2021, databases on priority biodiversity issues are available.


In Thailand, authority over management of natural resources and the environment was partially decentralized and allocated to local administrations. The local administrators are to cooperate with central authorities (through their local branches) in maintaining and restoring natural resources, increasing urban green areas as well as protecting natural reservoirs, farmlands and natural vegetation. They are also tasked with encouraging municipalities to conduct systematic inventory on urban biodiversity with the view to enable more sustainable town management.
