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.
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.
CBD Technical Series No. 58: Developing Ecosystem Service Indicators: Experiences and lessons learned from sub-global assessments and other initiatives
This report represents the efforts of a wide group of experts who were challenged with identifying how we might improve our understanding of ecosystem services using indicators. It focuses on the practical details of monitoring and measuring ecosystem services at scales that are relevant for policy and management. Drawing from a range of case studies and a thorough analysis of the literature, it lays out both the challenges to developing reliable indicators and the opportunities for improving and enhancing what we currently know.
These guidelines have been produced to support the development of ecosystem service indicators at the national and regional level for uses in reporting, assessments, policy making, biodiversity conservation, ecosystem management, environmental management, development planning and education. The guidance contains four key sections:
