2010 Biodiversity Indicators Partnership

The 2010 Biodiversity Indicators Partnership coordinates the delivery and communication of the suite of indicators measuring progress towards the 2010 Biodiversity Target. Funds allocated by the GEF to the Partnership amount to over $3.6 million and cover activities from late 2006 to late 2009, including establishing and maintenance of the Partnership, developing and delivering the range of indicators showing progress towards the 2010 target at a global scale, implementing a communications strategy, and increasing the capacity of national governments and regional organizations to develop and use biodiversity indicators in the context of the 2010 target. Over 40 Partners, including various UN agencies, IGOs, NGOs, scientific institutions, Multilateral Environmental Agreements, and representatives of national governments, have joined forces towards the delivery and reporting of the indicators measuring progress towards 2010. The 2010 Biodiversity Indicators Partnership is coordinated by the World Conservation Monitoring Centre of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP-WCMC).
