One of Biodiversa+’s major objectives is to improve biodiversity and ecosystem services monitoring in order to provide data for indicators that inform policy. In this context, this new report provides an overview of the indicators used and needed for the main European and global biodiversity goals and policies.
The report outlines priorities for indicator work, which include habitats, ecosystems, invasive alien species, and species within the EU Habitats and Birds Directives. Indicator work related to global goals and targets within the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is highly prioritised.
The report also highlights current and planned work on biodiversity indicators among partners, with a focus on sharing good practices and developing guidelines for governance.
