  • governmental agencies, non-governmental organisations, the private sector and communities are conscious, active and responsible participants in the management of
  • biodiversity, and the concerns for the management of biodiversity are taken into account within policy-making processes at all levels;
  • the integrity of the country’s biological diversity is maintained and, whenever possible, restored;
  • biodiversity contributes optimally, through sustainable uses, to the social, economic and cultural development of the country, and to the physical, spiritual, and psychological well-being of all its people;
  • national, regional and international efforts aimed at conserving biological diversity are consistent, mutually-supportive, and effective.
