As a response to Notification 2001-05-17/02 from the Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Belgian National Focal Point has elaborated this report on indicators for biological diversity in Belgium.
The objective of the report is to compile a set of indicators that are currently being used by Belgium as part of its monitoring processes. The report is based on an indicative list of biological diversity indicators provided as a reference point by the CBD Secretariat. The list was extended to include indicators specific to the Belgian context and comments were added, for example mentioning the specific purpose for which a particular indicator was used.
Indicators developed under other processes such as the State of the Environment reporting were also included, as suggested by the Executive Secretary.
