Why do we need the Biodiversity Indicators Dashboard?

Submitted by admin on Wed, 05/13/2015 - 10:37

Worldwide, billions of dollars are invested in conservation actions each year. How successful are these actions at stemming the loss of biodiversity? How are pressures on biodiversity changing, and where are the benefits from nature being realized? Answering these questions are key to directing future conservation investments. The answers also tell us how well governments are meeting the "Aichi Biodiversity Targets" they agreed to in 2010 under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The Biodiversity Indicators Dashboard provides access to measures of these factors at a variety of spatial scales.
