The UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) has published a new report Developing Ecosystem Service Indicators: experiences and lessons learned from sub-global assessments and other initiatives, which has been published in the CBD Technical Series. The report was produced in collaboration with the Biodiversity Indicators Partnership.
This report synthesises experiences and approaches to measuring, mapping and monitoring ecosystem services worldwide. It draws on the experiences of a range of sub-global assessments, which have been conducted during and subsequent to the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. The report is based on discussion and recommendations arising from international workshops held in 2009 and 2010, and its findings have contributed to the process of developing an indicator framework for the Aichi targets adopted by Parties to the CBD in Nagoya. It includes an annex of fact sheets describing examples of ecosystem service indicators taken from a range of assessments.
