Wetland Extent Trends Index [BIP]

Wetland Extent Trends Index [BIP]

Indicator description

The Wetland Extent Trends Index measures trends in wetland area over time, enabling the rate of loss (or growth) of wetland areas to be estimated and gives an indication of the status of wetlands globally. The analysis is based on a database containing over 1,000 wetland extent time-series’ and a methodology was developed to identify and account for thematic and geographic gaps, and conversely, over-representation in the data.

There is a significant increase in area, numbers and ecological connectivity in the Ramsar Site network, in particular under-represented types of wetlands including in under-represented ecoregions and Transboundary Sites.

Ramsar Target 12

Restoration is in progress in degraded wetlands, with priority to wetlands that are relevant for biodiversity conservation, disaster risk reduction, livelihoods and/or climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Mapping with SPMS 2015-2023

CMS Target 10

All critical habitats and sites for migratory species are identified and included in area-based conservation measures so as to maintain their quality, integrity, resilience and functioning in accordance with the implementation of Aichi Target 11, supported where necessary by environmentally sensitive land-use planning and landscape management on a wider scale.

CMS Target 11

Migratory species and their habitats which provide important ecosystem services are maintained at or restored to favourable conservation status, taking into account the needs of women, indigenous and local communities, and the poor and vulnerable.

Mapping with Sustainable Development Goals

SDG Target 6.6
