When the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity adopted the Strategy for Resource Mobilization in Support of the achievement of the three objectives of the Convention in May 2008, it called for preparing periodic global monitoring reports on the implementation of the strategy for resource mobilization. The Conference of the Parties in October 2010 further decided that global monitoring reports should provide essential information on the status and trends in biodiversity financing as well as help to disseminate funding knowledge and know-how as related to biodiversity.
The Global Monitoring Report series, prepared by the Secretariat staff in collaboration with the staff of partner agencies, focuses on how the world is doing in financing the implementation of biodiversity policies and actions designed to achieve the internationally agreed biodiversity goals, targets and related outcomes. The reports are a framework for accountability in global biodiversity policy.
