Presentation: The power to change the Earth system – and personal responsibility?

This presentation describes why and how scientists view our Earth as a system, and what that means for our understanding of global change processes and our capacity to intervene in them.

Sixth National Report - Technical Review Framework

This technical review framework outlines the key elements that should be included in the Sixth National Report (6NR), so it is high quality, gender-responsive and data-driven. Following the guidance will help ensure that each report is in alignment with the guidelines contained in annex to CBD/COP/DEC/XIII/27 and related guidance. The CBD Secretariat, UNDP and UN Environment developed it jointly. We encourage you to use this framework as a complementary guide while developing your 6NR.

Sixth National Reports - Technical Guidance documents (English, Spanish, French)


The 6NR Technical Guidance provides guidance to GEF-eligible Parties to the CBD in their work to develop high quality, gender-responsive and data-driven sixth national reports (6NR) using global and national indicators by 31 Dec. 2018. Our goal is to build the capacity of Parties to ensure that this reporting process improves national decision-making processes related to the implementation of NBSAPs, utilizes the best available data to monitor indicators of biodiversity status and trends, and effectively engage stakeholders to develop reports on progress towards achieving each ABT.

Transforming Development: The Science and Practice of Resilience Thinking

Resilience thinking includes the ability to persist in the face of challenges, adapt to new realities, or transform to fundamentally new paths for development. Resilience thinking is more than a theory, more than a set of tools. It is a way of seeing the world, offering a new perspective of how change in the world happens. Resilience thinking provides a new approach for building understanding and taking action in a complex world that is deeply interconnected and ever-changing. Trailer:
