Comments to Question 1 Why are we are trying to expand what we have when we have such great gaps in the dataflows today? More efforts should be made by the EEA to help MS to help meet present requirements. Difficult to explore new areas where we have not agreed on indicators for common implementation framework
Comments to Question 1 Emphasize not increasing the burden First priority is Aichi targets A indicators. C category more relevant for national levels. SEBI and Aichi indicators often the same. Thread of flexibility. Reporting to European level and global – should have flexibility Need to harmonize data
New dataflows Ecosytem services indicator IAS – data available in a number of countries in various states of availability (i.e. UK, Norway, Switzerland can deliver today), gaps in others Bats – data available through Batlife (Eurobats. Important for public awareness Insects Number of NGO’s
Question 2 – general comments Problem with mobilization of data, financial resources needed to be accessed.
Comments cont. Role of NGO’s in developing and supporting new indicators Important to use grassroot support when available Valuable with voluntary citizen science reporting, but difficult to cover an entire country. Pointwise monitoring better for supporting indicators.
