By 2020, at the latest, biodiversity values have been integrated into national and local development and poverty reduction strategies and planning processes and are being incorporated into national accounting, as appropriate, and reporting systems.

Multi-scale integrated models of ecosystem services (MIMES)

MIMES is an ecosystem-based management tool. It integrates georeferenced datasets, with diverse information sources on human and natural systems to create systems models. These systems models assess the value of ecosystem services at different spatial levels under different future scenarios. These are bespoke models for particular cases.

The MIMES approach has been applied in New Zealand and Massachusetts. It is also under development for use by the Ministry of Fisheries in Cambodia in managing the Tonle Sap Lake. 

Protected Planet

Protected Planet is the online visual interface for the World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA), a joint project of IUCN and UN Environment. The visual interface combines governmental, expert and general public opinions on protected areas. Protected Planet is the most up to date and complete source of information on protected areas. It is updated monthly with submissions from governments, non-governmental organizations, landowners and communities.

IUCN Red List of Threatened Species

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ is the most comprehensive, objective database of the global conservation status of species. It evaluates the extinction risk of thousands of species and subspecies. The IUCN aims to have each species re-evaluated in a peer reviewed manner every five years if possible, or at least every ten years. It provides information about range, population size, habitat and ecology, use, trade, threats, and conservation actions.

GIZ ValuES "Integrating Ecosystem Services into Development Planning" training course

This GIZ training advocates a stepwise approach for recognizing, demonstrating and capturing the value of biodiversity and ecosystem services for development planning. The training combines the theoretical and practical elements of the stepwise approach and guides participants through the application of each step (http://aboutvalues.net/six_steps/). The training is based on the Harvard Case Methodology, which conveys teaching messages mainly through interactive practical work by participants.
