Indicator: Species diversity and landscape quality

A graph shows the development of the population of representative bird species for different landscapes and the development of an aggregate indicator from 1970 to 2015. The aggregate indicator decreases significantly from 107 % in 1970 to 71 % in 2016.

In 2016 the indicator was at 70.5 % and remains far from the target value.The sub-indicators for farmland and coasts and sea have fared particularly badly.In the German Sustainable Development Strategy, the Federal Government envisages that the indicator should rise to 100 % by 2030. read more
