INDICATOR 15.1.2 (a)
Average proportion of Freshwater Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) covered by protected areas. This indicator Proportion of important sites for freshwater biodiversity that are covered by protected areas shows temporal trends in the mean percentage of each important site for freshwater biodiversity (i.e., those that contribute significantly to the global persistence of biodiversity) that is covered by designated protected areas.
TARGET 15.1
By 2020, ensure the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial and inland freshwater ecosystems and their services, in particular forests, wetlands, mountains and drylands, in line with obligations under international agreements.
GOAL 15
Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
