Protected Areas Management Effectiveness [BIP]

Protected Areas Management Effectiveness [BIP]

Indicator description

This indicator provides information on status and trends in effectiveness of management of protected areas (PA) that can be disaggregated to examine what methodology was used and how often a PA is being assessed. The indicator records the number of assessments of management effectiveness completed by countries for each protected area in the World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA). Where possible, the assessment is made publically available. The indicator therefore measures if a PA has been assessed for its management effectiveness and equitably, which is of critical importance in meeting Aichi Target 11, as the declaration of a PA does not always result in adequate protection.

CMS Target 3
National, regional and international governance arrangements and agreements affecting migratory species and their migration systems have improved significantly, making relevant policy, legislative and implementation processes more coherent, accountable, transparent, participatory, equitable and inclusive.
CMS Target 9
International and regional action and cooperation between States for the conservation and effective management of migratory species fully reflects a migration systems approach, in which all States sharing responsibility for the species concerned engage in such actions in a concerted way.
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.
