Mission and objectives

UNDP’s Global Programme on Nature for Development brings together three different initiatives under one program – the Equator Initiative, the National Biodiversity Initiative, and the Global Forest Initiative – in order to identify, foster, showcase and celebrate nature-based solutions that help achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at local, national and international levels. The work of the Global Programme on Nature for Development contributes to UNDP’s Strategic Plan 2014-2017 by charting sustainable development pathways through the conservation, restoration and sustainable management of biodiversity and ecosystems; and by promoting inclusive and effective democratic governance in the area of natural resources.

 

Context
The publication aims to support countries to take early action to undertake a detailed assessment of available national spatial data and identify spatial tools that can be used as part of their national monitoring system. To do this, the guidance identifies the targets and indicators that can be supported by spatial data, provide easy access to identify, view, and download the spatial data that are referenced in Decision 15/5 and on the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework indicators website, and supports countries to begin to think about existing national spatial data and national data gaps. It additionally provides an overview of resources available through the UN Biodiversity Lab (UNBL) that could be used by Parties, subject to their national needs and preferences, as part of a monitoring action plan in support of national implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework and its Monitoring Framework.
