A Biodiversity Indicators Dashboard: Addressing Challenges To Monitoring Progress Towards The ABT with Disaggregated Global Data

Recognizing the imperiled status of biodiversity and its benefit to human well-being, the world's governments committed in 2010 to take effective and urgent action to halt biodiversity loss through the Convention on Biological Diversity's “Aichi Targets”. These targets require monitoring to assess progress toward specific goals. However, comprehensive and easily understood information on biodiversity trends at appropriate spatial scales is often not available to those who require it. Towards this end, NatureServe and partners have published a "Biodiversity Indicators Dashboard" they developed by working with stakeholders in the Tropical Andes, the African Great Lakes, and the Greater Mekong. We have also uploaded it to the NBSAP Forum resource library (http://nbsapforum.net/#read-resource/1104). Citation: Han X, Smyth RL, Young BE, Brooks TM, Sa´nchez de Lozada A, et al.
