Using global biodiversity indicators and underlying data to support NBSAP development and national reporting:
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.
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
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.
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.
This guidance document to support national and regional use of the IUCN Red List Index is a product of the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™. It has been developed by IUCN and its partner organizations.
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) to track their progress towards the 2010 Biodiversity Target. Coverage of Protected Areas has been selected as one of the indicators suitable for assessing progress towards and communicating the 2010 Target at the global level. The aim of this document is to provide guidance to support the calculation and interpretation of the Coverage of Protected Areas indicator at the national and regional scales.
The following courses have been developed through the NBSAP Forum and in support of countries who are currently revising and updating their NBSAPs. At the time, the only course available is the Target Settings and NBSAP module; however, additional NBSAP content will be available in the future.
This table maps the current
suite of indicators brought together under the Biodiversity Indicators
Partnership to both the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and the Sustainable
Development Goals to support the identification of indicator synergies between
the processes. This is a working table which will be continually updated to
include new indicators as the BIP expands its membership, and greater
characterisation of how the indicators can be used at the national level.
This flyer has been developed to showcase how the BIP supports national use of biodiversity indicators.
This 2 page summary has been developed to showcase the BIP's work on filling indicator gaps, as well as information on national use of indicators.
