The Regional Resource Hub aims at developing the capacity of key stakeholders to make effective use of the services and tools provided by ESA HUB. One of the main objectives is to build the capacity of countries to make effective use of the Reference Information Systems, to report regularly to international conventions and agreements, such as the Convention on the Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) calls on initiatives to align capacity-building so as to further support implementation of national action plans for protected areas, and to continue to develop technical guidance to achieve the full scope of Aichi Biodiversity Target 11 (CBD COP 11 Decision XI/24).

The Vision

"The vision of the Regional Resource Hub is to be a leading resource centre that supports (local, national and regional) effective decision making and governance on protected areas and biodiversity and their link to sustainable development objectives."
