Indicators for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework

Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity are currently negotiating a global biodiversity framework at the UN Biodiversity Conference. Parties are also deliberating a draft of monitoring framework, which proposes a suite of headline, component and complementary indicators (see CBD/COP/15/2 Section 9B, pages 14-67).

This site provides information about the proposed indicators for the monitoring framework (metadata), to aid the negotiations. The site will be updated following COP15, and will be kept up to date with current information about the indicators for monitoring the global biodiversity framework.

Some of the metadata provided has been updated in December 2022, and others are yet to be updated following the outcomes of the negotiations and further development of the indicators. Please see the glossary for a full explanation of the terms used in these datasets.

Metadata have been provided by indicator custodians, and UNEP-WCMC bear no responsibility for the scientific or technical accuracy of the data presented.
