China Biodiversity Outlook

This report explores the short and longer-term implications of the implementation of China’s conservation policies using a range of land use and biodiversity models.

The report aims to:

    • Inform Chinese policy makers as to the biodiversity impact of a selection of current conservation policies;
    • Explore regional differences in the biodiversity impacts of the selected current conservation policies; and
    • Provide a modelling framework that can be applied to inform the design and implementation of future policies or goals, for instance, the Convention on Biological Diversity’s post-2020 global biodiversity framework targets and goals.

This report and the modelling framework have been developed as part of a technical support project on method development and decision support. They are an output from the Sino-German Biodiversity Component (SGBC) under Sino German Environmental Partnership Project (SGEP) Phase II, which is funded through the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) of the Federal Republic of Germany and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
