This book is a national report developed by the Ethiopian National Taskforce drawn from three government institutions (CSA, EWCA and IBC) and a local conservation NGO (EWNHS). The book presents examples of biodiversity indicators developed for selected threatened species and extent of area coverage of protected areas (PAs) in Ethiopia. It is intended to be used by protected area managers, educational and research institutions, conservation based institutions and others.
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.
