UK Biodiversity Indicators 2023. Indicator E1: Biodiversity data for decision making 2023


Updated 14 November 2023.

These documents support state indicator E1 – Biodiversity data for decision making. The documents include a datasheet.

Good policy making and evaluation is based on evidence. Millions of biological observations (records) have been recorded in the UK over the past century by a wide variety of organisations and individuals. This indicator provides an evaluation of the number of records added to the National Biodiversity Network (NBN) Atlas (which replaced the NBN Gateway) in a particular year, and the resolution of those data, as a proxy for the evidence available to underpin conservation decision making.
