This document contains the results of a project carried out with four country partners in order to develop biodiversity indicators for national use.
This guidance document is one of a series produced with the support of the 2010 Biodiversity Indicators Partnership (2010 BIP) to assist Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to track their progress towards the 2010 Biodiversity Target. Coverage of Protected Areas has been selected as one of the indicators suitable for assessing progress towards and communicating the 2010 Target at the global level. The aim of this document is to provide guidance to support the calculation and interpretation of the Coverage of Protected Areas indicator at the national and regional scales.
This form is for new Partners interested in joining the BIP, and for existing Partners with new indicators for submission.
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.
