Putting biodiversity at the heart of decision-making


We believe that the environment will be better managed if decision makers have the right information, tools and capacity to value biodiversity fully

The knowledge base

The issue

Good decisions are based on sound knowledge. In environmental decision-making, this means understanding the state of the environment and the drivers of environmental change, as well as tracking global responses to change. Data from individual countries can be collated to form worldwide information resources, which enable global targets to be set and progress towards them measured.

Our approach

At UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre we work with partners around the world to bring together, manage and keep updated several critically important global data sets. Our partners help us bring together national data in standard formats that can be compiled and compared with data from other countries.
