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
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.
This paper presents a revised set of BIP objectives and membership criteria for 2016-2020. The structure and operational principles aim to ensure the effectiveness of the BIP as it continues to respond to user needs and provide the best available biodiversity information for the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and other related initiatives.
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.
