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).
