CBD Guidelines Akwé: Kon Guidelines 2004
The Akwé Kon Voluntary Guidelines are a tangible tool in keeping with the greater emphasis now placed by Parties to the Convention on practical results based on the identification and pursuit of outcome-oriented targets with a view to achieving, by 2010, a significant reduction in the current rate of loss of biological
diversity, as set out in the Strategic Plan of the Convention and endorsed by the World Summit on Sustainable Development, held in Johannesburg in 2002. As indigenous and local communities are guardians of a significant part of the planet's terrestrial biodiversity, implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines could contribute to the 2010 target of achieving a significant reduction in the current rate of biodiversity loss.
