    How can Spatial Data Support Biodiversity Monitoring and Management?

    Would you like to deepen your understanding of how the 6NR results can be used to support conservation and sustainable development planning? In this webinar, representatives from Belize, Ecuador, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo explained how the spatial data generated during development of their 6NR is being used to improve NBSAP implementation. They also demonstrated how these data are enhancing biodiversity monitoring and management.

    How Conservation Planning Can Inform Key Decisions for Advancing and Implementing NBSAP

    Conservation planning involves important decisions: What do we want to conserve? Where should we do it? How should we do it? What resources will it take? How will we know we have done it? This webinar explains how conservation planning can inform key decisions during NBSAP implementation. It explores a conservation planning road map that integrates strategic and spatial planning. The session also focuses on tools and methods that answer important questions related to NBSAP implementation.

    Mapping Biodiversity Priorities

    This webinar is based on guidance published by SANBI and UNEP-WCMC. The session explores practical, science-based approaches to spatial biodiversity assessment and prioritization. It discusses the guiding principles, datasets, methods and products included in the guidance document. This approach can be applied in terrestrial, inland water, and coastal and marine environments. This webinar is especially useful for countries that are biodiversity rich yet resource constrained, and where difficult choices have to be made about how and where to focus conservation action.

    Using National Spatial Data Platforms to Guide Policies on Nature

    Are you interested in learning how nature-based policies can be guided by national repositories of spatial data? Colombia, Costa Rica, Indonesia, and Peru, each have a national spatial data platform used to monitor and report on biodiversity status and the effectiveness of measures to conserve it. These platforms are also used by decision-makers to design data-informed policies. Each speaker described how they used these national platforms and data to help develop their 6NR. They also explored how spatial data are helping their country monitor its progress to achieve the ABTs.

    Using the UN Biodiversity Lab to Support Biodiversity Conservation

    Would you like to learn how to use the UN Biodiversity Lab Status Maps to support biodiversity monitoring and reporting? In this webinar, Haiti, Iraq, Venezuela and Viet Nam showed how they are using the UN Biodiversity Lab to view and analyze conservation data. These countries also explained how they are using the UN Biodiversity Lab Status Maps to track their progress to achieve national and global biodiversity targets.
