This Sourcebook was developed as part of a UNEP project funded by the European Union and the Government of Switzerland that aimed to provide NFPs and other stakeholders with options to achieve enhanced implementation through strengthened cooperation. It focuses on six global Conventions: the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS); the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES); the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands (Ramsar Convention); the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (WHC); the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA); and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

Potential areas of overlap between the information requirements of the Biodiversity-Related Conventions

Table 11 below provides an overview of areas where more than one of the Biodiversity-related Conventions request data on similar topics in their national reports. The table was generated by analysing the reporting templates of each of the six Biodiversity-related Conventions for their most recent reporting cycles, looking first for key categories and then refining the analysis to identify specific sub-themes. Note that CITES annual reports are not considered, as they are substantially different to the other report formats, comprising records of trade in listed species. The matrix could be used to identify potential opportunities for collaboration on the collection and storage of information on certain topics (such as developing joint tenders), but is not suggesting that, where there is overlap, exactly the same information is needed.
