Redeveloped Biodiversity Indicators Partnership website launched at CBD COP13

The Biodiversity Indicators Partnership (BIP), convened by UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre, will today hold a side event at CBD COP13, to help guide Parties through the global biodiversity indicator landscape.

Today’s side event will include presentations on the work of the Partnership to address global gaps in indicators for the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and its Aichi Targets, including a case study of indicator development by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and on the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicator process.

The Partnership will also launch the redeveloped BIP website ( and interactive search facility. This search facility is designed to support users in identifying multiple uses of CBD global indicators and applicability at the national level.

In addition, two new UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre publications will also be launched: a Spanish translation of the State of Biodiversity in Latin America and the Caribbean which includes many indicators developed by BIP partners and a new brief on Multiple Threats to Wildlife mapping, the analysis of which has the potential for future development as an indicator. These reports are available for download below.

The BIP is a global initiative to promote the development and delivery of biodiversity indicators. It responds to the indicator requests of the CBD and other biodiversity-related Conventions for IPBES, for reporting on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and for use by national and regional governments.
