This document presents examples of the indicators produced as a result of the Biodiversity Capacity Strengthening in Africa project and is designed as a means for sharing experiences and lessons learnt with biodiversity indicator developers across the globe. The report concludes with key challenges and needs for future national indicator development identified by the project partners.
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.
