2 BIYP 2007 Government Statistics publication, June 2007 Background detail at

3 18 Headline Indicators 27 component measures Focus on biodiversity outcomes progress in UK towards 2010 target contribute to UK international reporting obligations Use existing UK data sources (avoid new burdens) Conform to EU & CBD frameworks Enduring, providing a good communication vehicle for biodiversity beyond 2010

4 Further development required 5. Genetic diversity 11. Invasive Species 13. Marine Trophic Index 14. Connectivity / fragmentation Plus refine others where possible

5 Overview on progress

6 Status of resource transfers and use 16. Public sector environmental protection expenditure on biodiversity in the UK

7 Status of resource transfers and use 17. UK Government funding for conservation of global biodiversity

8 Public opinion 18. Volunteer time spent in conservation

9 What Next? Update on website in ~April 2008, –include more on those needing development Update website and document in March 2009 –feed into CBD report ? Further publication in 2010 Starting to think beyond 2010
