This document identifies the most effective options for delivery of a target of achieving 30% of land and of ocean in protected areas and other effective area-based conservation measures by 2030 (‘30x30’), as set out in the draft Target 3 of the Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) from the Convention on Biological
Diversity (CBD).

A step-by-step guide is given for those in government and elsewhere charged with implementation, if and when CBD draft Target 3 is finalized. The guide covers: a situation analysis, a participatory process to agree on how 30x30 might be implemented, where and how, and legislative, financial, monitoring and reporting needs (tenure, governance, enabling policies, incentives, management, capacity, financing) for the process.
