SDG: 09 - Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure14 - Life below Water15 - Life on Land17 - Partnerships for the Goals

National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs) define set of 20, time-bound, measureable targets aimed to reduce biodiversity loss at the national and global level.

Representing and analyzing spatial data (data that includes geographical coordinates - latitude and longitude) is crucial to formulate policies to protect ecosystems, such as rainforests, mangroves, coral reefs, wetlands, drylands, and grasslands underpin human life on Earth. While spatial data is available online from a variety of sources, it is not always easily accessed.

Pulse Lab Kampala, in collaboration with the NBSAP Forum (www.nbsapforum.net), UNDP and the Government of Zimbabwe, has created a pilot tool to support the formulation of NBSAPs. The web-based tool makes accessible spatial data in a user-friendly way for decision-making.
