National Target (NT) 8 is the implementation for reducing the level of pollution that damages biological resources and ecosystem functions, thereby supporting Aichi Biodiversity Target (ABT) 8.
Based on the 2015-2020 IBSAP, the implementation of NT 8 supports IBSAP Action Plan 3, i.e. 'Maintenance and preservation of biodiversity' through the Activity Group 'Pollution control from many types of activities’.
