Red List Index (impacts of utilisation) [BIP]

Indicator description

People depend upon biodiversity and use wildlife in a variety of ways. For example birds, mammals and amphibians are hunted, trapped and collected for food, sport, pets, medicine, materials (e.g. fur and feathers) and other purposes.

The Red List Index (impacts of utilisation) shows trends in the status of all mammals, birds and amphibians worldwide driven only by the negative impacts of utilisation or the positive impacts of measures to control or manage utilisation sustainability.

Mapping with Sustainable Development Goals

SDG Target 8.4

Improve progressively, through 2030, global resource efficiency in consumption and production and endeavour to decouple economic growth from environmental degradation, in accordance with the 10‑Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production, with developed countries taking the lead

SDG Target 12.2

By 2030, achieve the sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources

SDG Target 14.4

By 2020, effectively regulate harvesting and end overfishing, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and destructive fishing practices and implement science-based management plans, in order to restore fish stocks in the shortest time feasible, at least to levels that can produce maximum sustainable yield as determined by their biological characteristics

SDG Target 15.7

Take urgent action to end poaching and trafficking of protected species of flora and fauna and address both demand and supply of illegal wildlife products
