Example of National Summary Dashboard: Conservation status and trends of habitats and species

The Bern Convention is pleased to announce that new digital tools of the Emerald Network and of the reporting under Resolution No. 8 (2012) have been launched in cooperation with the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The Emerald Network Barometer provides an overview of the Emerald Network in the non-EU Contracting Parties to the Bern Convention in terms of number and area of terrestrial and marine sites. The Barometer is grounded on the tabular and spatial data delivered by Contracting Parties and reflects the indicators of the monitoring framework of the Emerald Network: the national coverage of all categories of sites, the sufficiency index, the national coverage of only adopted sites, and the proportion of sites with management plans. 

The National summary dashboards of the first reporting under Resolution No. 8 (2012) on the conservation status of species and habitats present a summary of data reported by non-EU Contracting Parties in the frame of the 6-yearly report under Resolution No. 8 (2012) for the period 2013-2018, grouped into various themes. The dashboards also consider data delivered by EU Contracting Parties within the frame of the reporting under Articles 12 and 17 of the Birds and Habitats Directives.
