Biodiversity Toolbox for Continental Wetlands
The loss of wetland ecosystems as a result of land-use change puts pressure on biodiversity. These ecosystems have high biodiversity and are considered to be crucial for carbon storage. GHG emission reduction or removal projects whose activities prevent land use change shall demonstrate a positive impact on the biodiversity associated with the wetland ecosystem.
This tool guide the project holders in the design and implementation of biological component assessments and biodiversity monitoring plans. The tool highlights access to the platforms, databases, and guidelines developed by governments and international NGOs for vegetation and fauna groups associated with inland wetlands.
