Indicate and briefly describe any actions that have been carried out to implement this Resolution: 
ActionDescriptionStatus
Rassembler des parties prenantes/RéseautageEstablish a Secretariat to support the work of the Task Force: the secretariat consists of XIE Yan, TIAN Dexin, and Joshua BERGER. It is supported by the Institute of Zoology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.Completed
Rassembler des parties prenantes/RéseautageEstablish a global network of experts (no limit on size) from a wide range of origins to identify opportunities for protected area-friendly products & services and realize their economic and conservation potential.On-going
Education/Communication/SensibilisationCommunicate the concept of protected area-friendly production and develop consumer awareness through marketing. RESULT: a proposal to the Nordic Climate Fund has been submitted by the Secretariat (with partners) to demonstrate the business case for a green business beneficial to biodiversity: conservation-friendly cocoa (and chocolate). The project will include a focus on downstream marketing to raise consumer awareness.- Aucun -
Education/Communication/SensibilisationDemonstrate methodologies to link protected area friendly production with the delivery of ecosystem services from protected areas. RESULTS: methodologies and concepts have been demonstrated and shared at the International Alliance for Protected Area's annual meeting in Tangjiahe, China, in October 2017, including through trainings of protected area officials from a range of countries. They are also promoted through the Alliance for Civil Society Voluntary Conservation (社会公益保护地联盟), a gathering of 23 leading entities which aims to protect 1% of China's terrestrial area through private protected areas, in complement to the current public protected area network. A proposal entitled "Enhancing Management of Rice Production for improved Biodiversity and Climate Change mitigation" has also been submitted to the International Climate Initiative (IKI) by the Secretariat (with partners) to design, test and demonstrate on the field new agricultural techniques to produce rice in a handful of countries of East and South-East Asia to raise the delivery of ecosystem services such as climate change mitigation and adaptation, habitat for biodiversity, etc. Several communication tools have also been established: two websites - www.gpafs.net (English), www.baohudi.org (Chinese) -, WeChat groups to facilitate discussions among the global expert network, and two official accounts to spread information, on Facebook (English) and WeChat (public account in Chinese).On-going
Activités visant à influencer et/ou promouvoir les politiquesPromote the integration of the practice of protected area-friendly production into the Convention on Biological Diversity as a component of ensuring the equitable distribution of the costs and benefits of protected areas. RESULTS: the Secretariat submitted comments to the first external review for the IPBES global assessment of biodiversity and ecosystem services, so that considerations of the role of protected area-friendly products & services would be taken into account in the assessment (it was not the case in the first draft). The Secretariat also submitted comments on the Draft of CBD/SBSTTA/XXI/3 for review Guidance for Better Governance Towards a Sustainable, Participatory and Inclusive Wild Meat Sector, to similarly include consideration of the protected area-friendliness of wild meat products.Completed
Activités visant à influencer et/ou promouvoir les politiquesWork with the Paradise Foundation to establish a Paradise Protected Area-Friendly Product System promoting the sales of protected area-friendly products in China. Case studies on two protected area-friendly products to promote them: Bee Panda Honey and Original Beans' chocolates.Completed
Activités techniques/scientifiquesConduct research on the most effective approaches, methods and policies for promoting the value of protected area products and services and enhancing their impact on conservation and human health and well-being in each region. RESULTS: Two scientific, peer-reviewed, articles have been drafted, entitled "A new approach is needed to shift incentives in favour of biodiversity conservation: the necessary role of protected area-friendly products and services" and "How a more comprehensive functional zone system for terrestrial protected areas could improve and facilitate their management: a review". The former has already been published in Chinese in Tian, D., Xie, Y., Berger, J.Q.C., 2017. 寻找保护与发展的平衡点 ——推动建立全球保护地友好产品支持体系_中华环境网. 中华环境.On-going
Activités techniques/scientifiquesDevelop draft standards and certification procedures for protected area- friendly products and services based on the Chinese experience. RESULTS: Protected area-friendly product standards have been drafted in Chinese for honey, mushroom, meat, peanuts, brown sugar, pine nuts, dendrobium, yam, rice, food oil, beans, wheat, and tea. The protected area-friendly standard for honey is partly translated in English. A protected area-friendly product & service general framework has also been drafted in Chinese and English.On-going
Veuillez indiquer quels ont été les résultats obtenus dans le cadre des activités entreprises pour la mise en œuvre de cette Résolution: 
In order to establish the global network of experts and the regional committees and to gather experiences and establish the global trading platform, more than 130 entities have been contacted around the world. A wide range of stakeholders were contacted: Expert working with PA (9), Government working with PA (51), International donor working with PA (5), NGO working with PA (19), Private business working with PA (8), Protected area (37) and Protected areas organization (6). These entities spanned all the continents: Asia (65), Europe (25), Africa (20), South and Central America and the Caribbeans (17), North America (4), Oceania (2), and primarily international organizations (2). 59 of these entities answered to the Secretariat and various degree of collaboration have been established.
A map of the locations of the entities contacted is attached to this report.
Quelles mesures ont été prises afin de surmonter ces obstacles ?: 
One challenge is the lack of capacity and communication tools of many PA. One measure we took was to multiply communication channels to reach these PA: WhatsApp, WeChat, newsletter, email, etc. Another measure is to focus first on the most promising products and services (chocolate, products in China) to reinforce the case and get strong case studies, before expanding.
