Using global biodiversity indicators and underlying data to support NBSAP development and national reporting: Roadmap to support NBSAP practitioners

Many of the global indicators brought together under the Biodiversity Indicators Partnership (BIP) are comprised of national level data, or in some cases if not derived from national data, can be disaggregated at the national level. This Roadmap has been produced to create awareness of the possible use of the global indicators and their underlying data for supporting NBSAP implementation and national reporting requirements.

Review of national approaches to assessing progress towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets

Review of national approaches to assessing progress towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets

It is evident that a variety of approaches are used by countries in order to assess their progress towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets in Part III of their National Reports. This document aims to identify and summarise these approaches, and the strengths, limitations and considerations for use of each of these.

Developing indicators for national targets as part of NBSAP updating: Examples of the Biodiversity Indicator Development Framework in practice

Developing indicators for national targets as part of NBSAP updating: Examples of the Biodiversity Indicator Development Framework in practice

This document gives a number of worked examples of developing biodiversity indicators for countries’ NBSAPs. It aims to show the steps and processes involved in developing one or more indicators that help show progress made towards the achievement of a national target. The examples and conclusions shown are drawn from the results of a number of BIP workshops around the world.

Living Planet Index: Guidance for national and regional use

Living Planet Index: Guidance for national and regional use

This guidance document is one of a series produced with the support of the 2010 Biodiversity Indicators Partnership (2010 BIP) to assist Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) track their progress towards the CBD’s 2010 Target. The Living Planet Index (LPI) has been selected as one of the indicators suitable for assessing progress towards and communicating the 2010 Target at a global level. The aim of this document is to provide information to support the calculation and interpretation of the Living Planet Index at the national and regional scales.

Review of the global indicator suite, key global gaps and indicator options for future assessment of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020

Review of the global indicator suite, key global gaps and indicator options for future assessment of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020

The Terms of Reference for the AHTEG on Indicators for the Strategic Plan 2011-2020 (decision XII/1), called on the AHTEG to ‘identify a small set of measureable potential indicators that could be used to monitor progress at the global level towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets with a focus on those that are currently not well addressed and those that may be relevant to the United Nations post-2015 development agenda and sustainable development goals’. This document has been developed to support the AHTEG by identifying gaps in the current suite of indicators brought together under the BIP, building upon the indicative list of indicators adopted in decision XI/3 and reviewing potential indicators to fill these gaps. This document is not a report on the state of the world’s indicators.
