Red List Index (pollinator species) [BIP]

Indicator description

Biodiversity provides many different ecosystem services to people, at local to global scales. Most services are difficult to link to individual species but pollination is an exception, with multiple studies showing that exclusion of particular groups of pollinator species leads to reduction in crop productivity and value. This version of the RLI is based only on data for birds and mammals that are known or inferred to be pollinators and shows changes in the aggregate extinction risk of pollinator species over time. The decline in the Red List Index for pollinators indicates that ecosystems supporting them are not currently being adequately safeguarded.

Mapping with CITES Strategic Vision: 2008-2020

Objective 1.6

Parties cooperate in managing shared wildlife resources.

Mapping with 4th Ramsar Strategic Plan 2016-2024

Ramsar Target 11

Wetland functions, services and benefits are widely demonstrated, documented and disseminated.

Mapping with SPMS 2015-2023

CMS Target 2

Multiple values of migratory species and their habitats have been integrated into international, national and local development and poverty reduction strategies and planning processes, including on livelihoods, and are being incorporated into national accounting, as appropriate, and reporting systems.

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 2.4

By 2030, ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters and that progressively improve land and soil quality

SDG Target 15.4

By 2030, ensure the conservation of mountain ecosystems, including their biodiversity, in order to enhance their capacity to provide benefits that are essential for sustainable development
