Regional Environmental Indicator Assessments : 2020 Report

This dataset hosts 31 individual environmental indicator assessments that are in the State of Environment and Conservation in the Pacific Islands : 2020 Regional report.
Regional indicators are used to understand the current status of conservation in the region and to establish a process for periodic reviews of the status of biodiversity and implementation of environmental management measures in the Pacific islands region.
Each Pacific regional indicator is assessed with regard to:

  • its present status, outlining the current health of key habitat types and resources across the region as well as data availability for the present and future assessments;
  • pressures relating to the dominant factors and drivers of socio-environmental change affecting biodiversity, with an emphasis on recent changes, and opportunities relating to management, knowledge generation, or socio-ecological benefits of progress towards the target outcome; and
  • response recommendations, describing action to improve the health and sustainability of Pacific biodiversity and ecosystems.
