Draft Biodiversity Status Maps for Your 6NR – Ethiopia

At the beginning of the 6NR process, we challenged Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity to double the number of maps used from your 5NR to your 6NR. Are you on track to meet this challenge? We have exciting news for you!  Using the UN Biodiversity Lab, and the global datasets available within it, we created 18 draft biodiversity status maps for your country.

Towards an ecologically representative network of protected areas in Ethiopia

This document references Important Bird Areas (IBAs), which are Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) identified using birds. They are selected through the application of a set of four standard, internationally recognized criteria (see table below), based, as far as possible, on accurate and up-to-date knowledge of bird distributions and populations. The IBA categories and criteria refer to two essential attributes used to identify priorities for conservation: vulnerability (Category A1) and irreplaceability (different aspects of which are covered by A2, A3 and A4).

Gap Analysis of the Protected Areas System of Ethiopia

The Sustainable Development of the Protected Area System of Ethiopia [SDPASE] Project is financially supported by the Global Environment Facility [GEF]/UNDP. Since it came in to existence in 2008, SDPASE has introduced new ideas and studies and created a vibrant atmosphere in the sector. In 2012, SDPASE commissioned this study to identify the conservation gaps in Ethiopia’s protected areas system.
