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.



NB: as of 23rd October 2023, the Barometer web tool is undergoing developments, and should be ready by the end of 2023.

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 barometer is a tool which not only helps the Standing Committee to the Convention monitor progress in the implementation of the Emerald Network by Parties, but also supports Contracting Parties in stepping up their efforts and in setting conservation priorities.

The Emerald Network Barometer is updated once a year after each annual meeting of the Standing Committee.
