The 'Biodiversity baseline'. was unveiled at the opening session of the Green Week conference in Brussels. The 'Biodiversity baseline' for Europe provides a series of facts and figures on the different components of biodiversity. The ETC/BD was heavily involved in the production of this baseline.
The EU 2010 Biodiversity Baseline provides facts and figures on the state and trends of the different biodiversity and ecosystem components. It thereby supports the EU in developing the post‑2010 sub‑targets and provides factual data for measuring and monitoring progress in the EU from 2011 to 2020. The baseline is not a target, but rather a reference point.
