CBD COP side event: Towards modular approach to reporting against the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and SDGs

This side event presented innovative approaches to help parties to streamline their reporting to intergovernmental processes, through modular reporting based on the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, which also facilitates reporting on the SDGs by improving ways to use information more effectively.

Norbert Bärlocher, Swiss Confederation, FOEN, moderated the event emphasizing the increasing need to ease the reporting burden to biodiversity-related MEAs due to the increased amount of information available.

Gaston Akouehou, Chargé de Recherches au CAMES, Benin, presented on forest monitoring in West Africa describing the structure of an action plan for regional collaboration that involves multipurpose forest monitoring. He said streamlined biodiversity-related reporting is feasible for reporting to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) and REDD+.

Han De Koeijer, Focal Point, CBD Centre for Information Exchange, Belgium, reported on the Target Cross-linking Tool (TCT), aimed at facilitating data and information management. He demonstrated the complementarity of the TCT with the CBD voluntary online reporting tool and crosslinking with targets of biodiversity-related conventions including CBD, Ramsar and the Convention on Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS).

Christoph Reusser, FOEN and Katharina Bieberstein, UNEP-WCMC, presented jointly on elements for a modular reporting against the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. Reusser said this project provides opportunities to explore the common use of national reporting data to increase information coherence and reduce the national reporting burden. Bieberstein said a more integrated approach to biodiversity loss resulting from use of modular reporting will influence the development of a post 2020 global biodiversity framework and tools and processes related to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Frank Wugt Larsen, European Environment Agency, presented on the Data Reporting Tool (DaRT) for Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) developed by the EU to cross-link biodiversity-related targets from national, to regional, to global levels. Participants tool, he noted, will be made available to parties through UNEP’s InforMEA platform.

In discussions, participants said any tools that relieve the reporting burden, while saving resources should be used by all parties. Some noted that biodiversity-related national institutions are fragmented and that modular reporting tools would enable integrating the data they generate. They also noted the disparity in reporting among the different biodiversity-related conventions, saying CBD has the highest reporting rate.
