ABT 2. Integration of biodiversity values
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.
The Regional and Subregional Assessment of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services for Asia and the Pacific
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.
Conservation Evidence (www.conservationevidence.com) collects and summarises scientific evidence on the effectiveness - or otherwise - of conservation actions. Concise, plain-English accounts of how well conservation actions have worked can be used by decision-makers to make conservation planning more effective.
