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
What kind of technical guidance and support do you need to complete your Sixth National Report (6NR) by the December 2018? Please use this discussion thread as an opportunity to share the types of technical guidance and support you need in the second half of 2018 to develop and submit a high quality, data-driven 6NR! We look forward to your responses. During SBSTTA 22, technical specialists from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) will be available at the Help Desk to answer your questions in English, French, and Spanish about the technical and operational elements of the national reporting process. The Help Desk will be open from 2–6 July 2018 and is located in the hallway outside of the plenary room. Each day, the Help Desk will be open from 9–11 am, 12–3 pm and 6–7 pm. We welcome you to stop by during the Help Desk hours.
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). 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.
Nature-based solutions provide a cost effective way to improve water and food security. Learn more from this webinar, hosted by FAO, on June 28 at 14:00-15:30 CET.
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
