Chart E.3.i. Number of biodiversity-related guidance documents published

Guidance on the role of biodiversity, and the need for its conservation, in all sectors is needed in order to raise awareness and encourage action by non-biodiversity-related agencies. This indicator would track the number of up-to-date guidance documents available across all sectors.

Only documents explicitly stating recommendations for biodiversity management and conservation were included. Reports and surveys summarising the state of biodiversity in a particular taxon or ecosystem were excluded. The relevant agencies websites were searched manually and a specific Google search term used for each agency e.g. for NPWS: “biodiversity guidance site:npws.ie”. Data were compiled from documents available on the 06.02.2014.
