National Target 8: Reduction of pollution that damages biological resources and ecosystem functions

National Target (NT) 8 is the implementation for reducing the level of pollution that damages biological resources and ecosystem functions, thereby supporting Aichi Biodiversity Target (ABT) 8.

Based on the 2015-2020 IBSAP, the implementation of NT 8 supports IBSAP Action Plan 3, i.e. 'Maintenance and preservation of biodiversity' through the Activity Group 'Pollution control from many types of activities’. The implementation of NT 8 is expected to reduce the level of environmental pollution - be it in air, land or water, preventing habitat damage and extinction of biodiversity.

The formulation of National Targets was carried out in a participatory manner through (1) evaluation and mapping of suitability and implementation of the IBSAP 2003-2020; (2) as a whole, formulating action plans and programs for achieving national and global targets by updating data and information regarding the current status of Indonesian biodiversity and key documents such as the National Medium-Term Development Plan 2015-2019 and Government Work Plan in 2015 which are published by five Ministries/Government institutions, i.e. the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Forestry (since January 2015, both ministries have merged and became the Ministry of Environment and Forestry), the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, and the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI); and (3) consultations, as the results of identification of national targets along with the action plans and programs, with relevant biodiversity experts, biodiversity managers in Ministries/Agencies, Regional Governments, private sector/biodiversity actors, and civil society organizations through various workshops, seminars, focus group discussions during the period 2013 - 2014 at the national level and some in the regional level (KemenPPN/BAPPENAS, 2016, pp. 17-19).
