How to build trustworthy biodiversity indicators

Our project is generating three integrated processes for building trustworthy biodiversity indicators.

Building engagement and trust

Building trust in our bird indicators and measures by engaging the science and non-science community in their development

Harmonising indicators for reporting

Delivering a harmonised system for combining data from multiple sources to provide bird metrics that can report complex trends in biodiversity status in a succinct, accurate and comparable manner across a range of spatial scales.

Ways to improve

Adding value to existing bird monitoring initiatives and information by improving data collection and reporting methods
