The Aichi Passport is now available to download as a SmartPhone App and PDF document. The Beta version of the Passport, which will be officially launched at CBD COP 11 in Hyderabad, India, is a "proof of concept” for annual indicator reporting by the Biodiversity Indicators Partnership. UNEP-WCMC is host to the Secretariat of the BIP.
For each of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, one or two indicators are presented to highlight:
1) what progress has been made towards the targets to date
2) what baselines exist from which future progress can be monitored.
As the Aichi Biodiversity Targets are multi-faceted, in most cases an individual indicator is insufficient if used in isolation to assess overall progress towards a target. The BIP is working to enhance and increase the number of global indicators available for each of the targets. Future editions of the passport will see the linking of indicators under Aichi Biodiversity Target to provide more comprehensive storylines of progress.
