The initial set of Ecological ‘outcome-oriented’ indicators for assessing the implementation effectiveness of the Ramsar Convention are: the overall conservation status of wetland, the status of the ecological character of Ramsar sites, trends in water quality, the frequency of threats affecting Ramsar sites, wetland sites with successfully implemented conservation or wise use management plans, overall population trends of wetland taxa, changes in threat status of wetland taxa, and the proportion of candidate Ramsar sites designated so far for wetland types/features. Further indicators are recommended for further consideration and future development, see Ramsar Resolution IX.1, Annex D.

Author Commentary 5

UNCCD Decision 17/COP.7, 2
The decision refers to benchmarks and indicators for the monitoring and assessment of desertification. UNCCD Decision 17/COP.6, 2 and UNCCD Decision 11/COP.5, 2 These two obligations are almost identical, except for the former adding indicators for implementation of the Convention. All these obligations, together with UNCCD Decision 17/COP.7, 6 and UNCCD Decision 5/COP.3, 23 overlap substantially.
