BILBI outputs and applications
Our goal is efficient planning of actions to achieve biodiversity outcomes, and effective tracking of progress. This requires the capacity to measure the present state of biodiversity, the ability to detect trends of recent change, and the expertise to project the potential future state of biodiversity expected under alternative policy options, in a globally consistent way.
BILBI was purposely designed by CSIRO to be flexible and adaptable, thereby allowing the development team to tailor analyses and outputs to serve the needs of new applications as they arise. Examples provided in Figure 1 a) and b).
Figure 1. Example outputs from BILBI such as reporting on biodiversity indicators (a) and assessing plausible policy options (b)
Indicators: tracking progress for biodiversity
Monitoring progress towards targets endorsed by the Convention on Biological Diversity
Accounts: National to sub-national biodiversity reporting
Assessing human impacts on biodiversity for environmental accounting
Impact assessment: impacts of development on biodiversity
Estimating the potential impact of proposed development and associated offset activities on biodiversity to support sustainable development
