Date: March 2006 (CoP VII)

The CBD Conference of the Parties agreed on a limited number of trial indicators, to assess progress at the global level towards the 2010 target, and to effectively communicate trends in biodiversity related to the three objectives of the Convention (paragraphs 3 and 4 of decision VII/30). The 2010 target is "to achieve by 2010 a significant reduction of the current rate of biodiversity loss at the global, regional and national level as a contribution to poverty alleviation and to the benefit of all life on earth." The COP agreed on eight indicators for immediate testing and another 13 indicators requiring further development.
