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.
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 provides a new approach for building understanding and taking action in a complex world that is deeply interconnected and ever-changing. Trailer: https://youtu.be/7RJISedkqVE
