Official development assistance for biodiversity [BIP]

Official development assistance for biodiversity [BIP]

Indicator description

The OECD Official Development Assistance Committee (DAC) monitors development finance targeting the objectives of the Rio Conventions on climate change, biodiversity and desertification. Data are reported by members of the OECD DAC to the Creditor Reporting System (CRS) using the so-called Rio markers. Reporting on biodiversity became mandatory in 2006. For each activity reported, DAC members indicate whether it targets the objectives of the Rio Conventions as a ‘principal’ or ‘significant’ objective. Activities marked ‘principal’ would not have been funded but for that policy objective; activities marked ‘significant’ have other prime objectives but have been formulated or adjusted to help meet the policy objective. Through this scoring system the markers provide an indication of the degree of mainstreaming of biodiversity considerations into development co-operation.
