Dear users and colleagues working on the Sixth National Report to the CBD, we are delighted to share with you the Technical Review Framework for the 6NR. This technical review framework outlines the key elements that should be included in the 6NR. Following it 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.
On Monday, 9 July 2018, UN Environment, UNDP, and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, will host a side event during the second meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Implementation, taking place in Montreal, Canada 9 - 13 July 2018.
The side event, “National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans: Lessons Learned and the Way Forward” will be held at 13:15pm in Room A and will conclude lessons learned on the NBSAP revision process and explore options for the future of the NBSAPs.
The UN Biodiversity Lab is an online platform that allows policymakers and other partners to access global data layers, upload and manipulate their own datasets, and query multiple datasets to provide key information on the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and nature-based Sustainable Development Goals.
UNDP convened interested collaborators in 2017 at the Nature for Development Spatial Data Summit to envision a future where cutting edge spatial data is made available to decision-makers, enabling them to efficiently report on the effects of their conservation and development policies. This work will play a key role in the delivery and achievement of both the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and Sustainable Development Goals.
¿Desea conocer los datos espaciales disponibles para mejorar la toma de decisiones en conservación y desarrollo sostenible? ¿Está interesado en utilizar datos espaciales de vanguardia para avanzar en la implementación de su EPANDB y en los informes nacionales al CDB?

Do you want to learn about spatial data available to enhance conservation and sustainable development decisionmaking? Are you interested in using cutting edge spatial data to advance your NBSAP implementation and national reports to the CBD? The UN Biodiversity Lab is an online platform that allows policymakers and other partners to access global data layers, upload and manipulate their own datasets, and query multiple datasets to provide key information on the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and nature-based Sustainable Development Goals.
