The Aichi Targets Passport was first released as a “proof of concept” in October 2012. This Beta version included one or two indicators for each Aichi Biodiversity Target. Since the release of the Beta version, the BIP Partnership has continued working to enhance and increase the number of global indicators available for each of the targets.
This third edition of the Aichi Targets Passport has been released in tandem with the fourth edition of the Convention on Biological Diversity’s (CBD) flagship publication, the Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO4). The Passport presents a suite of indicators, which are as far as possible, global in their coverage, scientifically valid and peer reviewed, and relevant to the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. In particular, indicators are presented to highlight the progress that has been made towards each target so far and what baselines exist from which future progress can be monitored.
