Brief Methodology for WWF Discussion Paper: Using Public Data Platforms To Assess Deforestation Risks Within Jurisdictions I January 2017

Countless companies, governments, NGOs, and Indigenous Peoples’ organizations have collectively committed to eliminate deforestation from major agricultural commodity production. While this global ambition shows great promise, considerable challenges lie ahead. In particular, these challenges include both a lack of transparency and traceability within commodity supply chains and the issue of illegality across production landscapes, which can leave stakeholders vulnerable to a number of economic, social, and environmental risks.

Mapping Biodiversity Priorities

This document sets out a practical, science-based approach to spatial biodiversity assessment and prioritisation, which can be applied at the national level in any country. It is especially useful for countries that are both biodiversity rich and resource constrained, where difficult choices have to be made about how and where to focus conservation action. This document shows how even the most data-poor country can use available global data as the basis for an initial spatial assessment and prioritisation that will yield useful results.

Biodiversity Planning: An Assessment of National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plan

In keeping with the mandate of UNU-IAS, the intention of the authors has been to offer analysis and policy advice to those directly responsible for reviewing the implementation of the CBD, those who will have a role in implementing a new generation of NBSAPs and those working to support countries in their efforts to stem the rate of biodiversity loss.

Mainstreaming Biodiversity - A series of success stories!

Integrating biodiversity objectives into current development models is a complex challenge and does not happen by itself. The various case studies presented through these factsheets discreetly identify some of the characteristics required to achieve these outcomes. These factsheets of successful stories of mainstreaming are a result of a joint BirdLife International/IUCN project which aimed at complementing the existing literature on this subject, that has remained, so far, mostly on theoretical grounds.

Incorporating indicators into National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs)

This best practice document provides a summary of the above guidance “Incorporating indicators into NBSAPs – Guidance for practitioners” produced by the UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre Policy (a web link to the full report follows the document text). This document is designed to provide guidance on the use of indicators in the preparation and implementation of National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs). In 2010, Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) adopted the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011- 2020.
