Linking indicators for policy guidance

Drawing from available data, the Biodiversity Indicators Partnership (BIP; www.bipindicators.net) used the pressure-state-benefit-response framework to identify a series of indicators that measure progress against the Aichi Biodiversity Targets of the UN Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 (BIP, 2010; Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, 2010). As these biodiversity indicators measure the biodiversity components that also underpin sustainable development, they offer opportunities to establish complementary indicators for SDGs using a similar framework. For example, existing National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs) can offer further guidance for developing SDG indicators and implementation plans (Bowles-Newark et al., 2014) as there is considerable alignment across indicators identified by the BIP (BIP, 2011) and the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UN SDSN, 2014) .
