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.
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.
Biodiversity policy is a devolved responsibility in the UK: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have each developed or are developing their own biodiversity or environment strategies. Indicators are being developed to track progress with the respective commitments in each country. The UK indicators have a specific purpose for international reporting and were selected following consultation and agreement between the administrations. The indicators provide a flexible framework and a common set of methodologies which in some cases can also be used for country reporting. The indicators may be subject to further review as necessary.
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.
