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.
Launch of the UN Biodiversity Lab: An Innovative Platform for the Preparation of the Sixth National Report
You can now download the presentation from the technical webinar #6 on The use of biodiversity indicators to prepare your 6NR (English: https://bit.ly/2tC7zBR l French: https://bit.ly/2tBQqIC | Spanish: https://bit.ly/2v3qxSq). Robert Hoft, from the Secretariat of the CBD, and Philip Bubb, from UN Environment - WCMC, shared their expertise and perspective on how to use relevant indicators to prepare your Sixth National Report.
Land-use planning frameworks have traditionally focused on developing settlements and related infrastructures with limited consideration of biodiversity conservation and climate adaptation and mitigation requirements. It is underused in maximizing win-win solutions for human well-being and sustainability under the threat of global climate change. Awareness and knowledge of land-use planning as a tool for biodiversity and climate resilience are to be raised and strengthened among relevant actors at various levels. https://vimeo.com/246437360
