Protected Planet Report 2012. Tracking progress towards global targets for protected areas
  • United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC). October 2012
  • Well-managed protected areas support not only healthy ecosystems and threatened species, but also provide multiple benefits to people. These benefits include a wide range of ecosystem services such as clean water provision, food security, disaster risk reduction and climate regulation. This report tracks global progress towards Target 11 of the Convention on Biological Diversity's (CBD) Aichi Biodiversity Targets and summarises the status and trends in global biodiversity protection for decision makers and the conservation community. It is the first in a series that will be produced every year until 2020 to evaluate progress towards international protected area targets. In order to highlight trends over time, this report draws on a range of indicators that cover at the period 1990-2010.
