With the adoption of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and the Aichi Biodiversity Targets in the framework of the Convention on Biological Diversity, countries will have to formulate biodiversity indicators and gather data that will feed these.

One of the strategic objectives of the CEBioS programme is to improve the knowledge on the measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of policy choices and activities linked to biodiversity and ecosystem services.

We intend to work with our partner countries in the South on the development, assessment or implementation of indicators in the framework of their National Biodiversity Strategies. To this end, a first call on MRV projects is launched.

In 2015, eligible countries are: Benin – Burkina Faso – Burundi – DR Congo – Ivory Coast – Mali – Morocco – Niger.

The deadline to apply is 17 May 2015.

The full text of the call is available here.
