Red List Index (impacts of invasive alien species) [BIP]

Red List Index (impacts of invasive alien species) [BIP]

Indicator description

This indicator shows trends in the status of all birds worldwide driven only by the negative impacts of invasive alien species or the positive impacts of their control. It is based on BirdLife International’s assessments of extinction risk for all birds for the IUCN Red List, specifically the number of species in each Red List category of extinction risk, and the number moving categories between assessments owing to genuine improvement or deterioration in status driven by impacts of invasive alien species or their control. All other changes are excluded, whether from improved knowledge, or genuine impacts of other threats or their control. Trends for mammals and amphibians will be added when the index is updated in 2017.

Mapping with Sustainable Development Goals

SDG Target 15.8

By 2020, introduce measures to prevent the introduction and significantly reduce the impact of invasive alien species on land and water ecosystems and control or eradicate the priority species

Mapping with 4th Ramsar Strategic Plan 2016-2024

Ramsar Target 4

Invasive alien species and pathways of introduction and expansion are identified and prioritized, priority invasive alien species are controlled or eradicated, and management responses are prepared and implemented to prevent their introduction and establishment.

Mapping with SPMS 2015-2023

CMS Target 8

The conservation status of all migratory species, especially threatened species, has considerably improved throughout their range.
