Definition
Sub-indicator (a), national targets in accordance with Aichi Biodiversity Target 2 of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 in their National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plans (NBSAP) and the progress reported towards these targets: "Denmark's primary contribution to implementing the UN Strategic Plan for Biodiversity is through the EU Biodiversity Strategy. Consequently, Denmark does not prepare national statements on progress in meeting the individual Aichi Targets. In addition, Denmark's national biodiversity strategy is being revised. Consequently, at present, no targets have been established at national level in a revised national biodiversity strategy" (Sixth Danish Country Report - Convention on Biological Diversity 2019, p. 3). Sub-indicator (b), integration of biodiversity values into national accounting and reporting systems, defined as implementation of the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA): Denmark has implemented SEEA Central Framework, but not yet SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting. In relation to biodiversity values, EEA is more relevant.
