Guidelines & Tools
Monitoring involves numerous tools, protocols and technological innovations, often adapted for specific taxa or biomes. In the near future we will showcase some key examples and case studies on this site.
The IUCN SSC Species Monitoring Specialist Group and the IUCN Global Business and Biodiversity Programme have produced IUCN Guidelines for Planning and Monitoring Corporate Biodiversity Performance. The Guidelines were developed by IUCN teams in collaboration with business partners, especially Nespresso, Boskalis and Alcoa.
The Guidelines provide a four-stage, science-based approach for developing a corporate biodiversity strategic plan and measuring biodiversity performance across company operations and supply chains. The approach enables companies to be more targeted in their biodiversity focus by identifying the species and habitats important to them and understanding the benefits they provide to people.
The Guidelines can be freely downloaded from the IUCN website HERE.
