Developing indicators for national targets as part of NBSAP updating: Examples of the Biodiversity Indicator Development Framework in practice

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.

Review of the global indicator suite, key global gaps and indicator options for future assessment of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020

Review of the global indicator suite, key global gaps and indicator options for future assessment of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020

The Terms of Reference for the AHTEG on Indicators for the Strategic Plan 2011-2020 (decision XII/1), called on the AHTEG to ‘identify a small set of measureable potential indicators that could be used to monitor progress at the global level towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets with a focus on those that are currently not well addressed and those that may be relevant to the United Nations post-2015 development agenda and sustainable development goals’. This document has been developed to support the AHTEG by identifying gaps in the current suite of indicators brought together under the BIP, building upon the indicative list of indicators adopted in decision XI/3 and reviewing potential indicators to fill these gaps. This document is not a report on the state of the world’s indicators.

Cross-mapping of indicators under the BIP

Cross-mapping of the Biodiversity Indicators Partnership indicators to the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and SDGs

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.
