Data Reporting Tool for MEAs (DaRT)

DaRT is the first tool supporting Parties to effectively use synergies in the field of knowledge and information management for national reporting to biodiversity-related conventions. DaRT is being developed by UNEP, with the support of SCBD, and was endorsed by the InforMEA Initiative which brings together MEAs. It is financially supported by the European Union and Switzerland.

Bioland Tool

The Bioland Tool is a turnkey solution that can be used by all countries, no matter what capacity constraints they are faced with, to establish a basic operational national CHM website which, among other things, can effectively facilitate NBSAP implementation. This turnkey solution uses the Drupal content management system (CMS) and is available at no cost to countries. Click here to see a demonstration of the Bioland Tool. Countries interested in making use of the Bioland Tool should contact the CBD Secretariat at

BIP Dashboard

As of 22 November 2019, the "BIP Dashboard" has been enhanced with 4 new indicators and data updates to two existing indicators. The BIP Dashboard now serves a total of 15 indicators providing at least one indicator for tracking progress on Aichi Biodiversity Targets 1, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15 and 19. All indicators can be flexibly visualized at global, regional and national scales. Both the visualizations (in graph and map form) and the data behind the indicators can be downloaded for inclusion as evidence-based indicators for reporting on national target progress in National Reports. The BIP Dashboard, originally launched in November 2018, was developed through collaboration between UNEP-WCMC, as the BIP secretariat, and NatureServe, and provides improved visualisation and exploration of BIP Partners' indicators. It also features spatial information at multiple scales with downloadable graphs of trend data.
