Outcome area 3.3
Knowledge on biophysical and socio-economic factors and on their interactions in affected areas is improved to enable better decision-making
Outcome area 3.4
Knowledge of the interactions between climate change adaptation, drought mitigation and restoration of degraded land in affected areas is improved to develop tools to assist decision-making
Number of revised NAPs/SRAPs/RAPs reflecting knowledge of DLDD drivers and their interactions, and of the interaction of DLDD with climate change and biodiversity
Global target
Percentage of revised NAPs/SRAPs/RAPs that have successfully gone through a quality self-assessment
≥ 70
To be reported on by
Please note: CONS-O-10 is interdependent with CONS-O-5, since both indicators deal with issues relating to NAP alignment and implementation.
Please also note: information on CONS-O-10 can be provided only if in CONS-O-5 the question of whether the NAP has been aligned to The Strategy was responded to in the affirmative. If your response to this question in CONS-O-5 was no, CONS-O-10 will be disabled and no further information needs to be provided.
Understanding the indicator
The indicator measures knowledge-transfer processes from the theoretical to the operational level. This is done through an assessment carried out by affected country Parties (self-assessment) of the levels of traditional and scientific knowledge reflected in their NAPs. The assumption is that NAPs based on sound scientific knowledge will propose more significant and effective strategies and activities for implementation at the national level, and will be more effective than those NAPs that do not take into account available knowledge of DLDD and DLDD synergies with climate change and biodiversity.
The indicator will provide information on  to what extent UNCCD implementation is likely to achieve meaningful results. Subregional and regional reporting entities will complement the information provided by affected country Parties by reporting on the assessment of their SRAPs and RAPs.
Data needed
§     NAP aligned to the Strategy;
§     Scientific literature consulted for the formulation/revision of the NAP.
Data sources
Documentation available at UNCCD NFP level, including the NAP document.

National contribution to the global target
The contribution to the global target is given if, in the aligned NAP: (a) the identification and analysis of biophysical and socio-economic drivers of DLDD, and of their interaction among them; or (b) the identification and analysis of interaction between DLDD and climate change and biodiversity are based on solid scientific knowledge and evidence, including pertinent baseline information.
Qualitative assessment
A further assessment is conducted on (a) whether the barriers to sustainable land management are clearly identified in the aligned NAP; and (b) whether possible solutions to overcome these barriers are included in the aligned NAP.
Please note that specific questions are asked on data availability on two progress indicators that are also included in the UNFCCC and CBD reporting processes, with a view to identifying possible synergies among the reporting processes of the Rio conventions, particularly data compilation at the national level.
Please further note: if you answer that your NAP/SRAP/RAP has been aligned, but has not been revised according to the specific requirement of this indicator, the following field will be displayed in the “voluntary national target” section below:
Voluntary national target
The plan to revise the NAP according to the specific requirements of this indicator by a given year is proposed as the national voluntary target.
If your country/subregion and/or region has a different target for this indicator, please indicate it in the text box (please note that you should either confirm your plans as described above or indicate a different target; the two options are mutually exclusive).
This applies only to ACP and SRAP reporting entities.
