Sixth National Report (6NR) to the CBD


Article 26 of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) states that, at intervals to be determined by the Conference of the Parties (COP), Parties will report on the measures which they have taken to implement the provisions of the CBD and their effectiveness in meeting CBD objectives. The next national report to the CBD, the Sixth National Report (6NR), is due 31 December 2018. At the thirteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 13), held in Cancun in December 2016, the 6NR guidelines and reporting templates were adopted (Decision XIII/27). These documents can be accessed here. This reporting period will provide a final review of the progress each Party is making to implement the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and achieve the Aichi Biodiversity Targets.

The Sixth National Report contains seven sections:

  1. Information on the targets being pursued at the national level
  2. Implementation measures taken (to implement the national biodiversity strategy and action plan (NBSAP)), assessment of their effectiveness, and associated obstacles and scientific and technical needs to achieve national targets
  3. An assessment of progress towards each national target
  4. A description of the national contribution to the achievement of each global Aichi Biodiversity Target
  5. A description of the national contribution to the achievement of the targets of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (completion of this section is optional)
  6. Additional information on the contribution of indigenous peoples and local communities to the achievement of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets if not captured in the sections above (completion of this section is optional)
  7. Updated biodiversity country profiles

An optional online reporting tool, accessible on the CBD Clearing-House Mechanism (CHM), is available in the six UN languages to facilitate the reporting process.
