Six National Technical Support Workshop: Caribbean & Central America (2019)
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEnvironment) are working in collaboration with the Secretariat to the Convection on Biological Diversity (SCBD) to support 139 GEF-eligible Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in their work to develop a high quality, gender-responsive and data-driven Sixth National Report (6NR). These reports will improve the implementation of National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAP), the development of conservation policy and decision-making, the ability of countries to report on their progress towards achieving the Aichi Biodiversity Targets (ABT), and inform both the Fifth Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO5) and the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
To meet this goal, countries are working to better develop baselines of biodiversity status, determine how to use spatial data to inform conservation decisions, monitor indicators over time, and integrate the perspective of indigenous and local communities, as well as women. The data within these reports will assist countries in evaluating the present and future status of nature in their countries, report on areas of significant biodiversity decline, better understand the risks these declines poses for people and the planet, and develop urgent and meaningful actions in the region to halt or reverse it
