What are the implications for resident people of plans to greatly increase global protected and conserved area coverage, and how might these be addressed to maximize positive outcomes for nature and society?
Team Status: NEW
Team Critical Challenge:
  1. New analysis of the potential social impacts of 30×30 at global level, under various scenarios for implementation. This will include analysis of affected populations disaggregated as far as possible by wealth, ethnicity, voice in decision making and other important social variables.
  2. A more detailed analysis of one case study country (likely to be in Central Africa).
  3. Feasible proposals for how 30×30 could be implemented at the country level in a way that maximises social benefits while minimising social harms, co-developed with implementation partners.
  4. Improved dialogue and a strong foundation for future inter-disciplinary and cross-sectoral research collaboration between people with different perspectives on area-based conservation.

Social considerations are crucial to success in implementing the 30×30 global conservation target

This correspondence outlines the critical need for the implementation of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity’s Target 3 of the Global Biodiversity Framework (protecting 30% of the earth by 2030) to focus on national and sub-national analyses, research questions designed by place-based coalitions, comparative analyses of multiple countries, better social indicators (relating to rights, participation, justice, or financing) and research and support for political mobilization.
