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.
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 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.
