Understanding the indicator
The indicator measures the use of biophysical and socio-economic information at the national level in defining a commonly agreed core set of progress indicators for the UNCCD and in monitoring progress against these indicators.
The indicator will provide information on to what extent it is possible to compile a comparable and global assessment of UNCCD impact.
Subregional and regional reporting entities will complement the information provided by affected country Parties by reporting on the use of progress indicators at the subregional and regional levels, if and when progress indicators for these levels will be commonly agreed upon by the Conference of the Parties.
Data needed
The information to report on this indicator will be compiled every four years when reporting on the strategic objectives that require biophysical and socio-economic information (i.e. Strategic Objectives1, 2 and 3).
Data sources
Reports by country Parties and subregional and regional reporting entities.
