Abstract

Flanders is tracking its progress towards the achievement of the 2010 target via 22 biodiversity indicators. They are in line with the focal areas and targets of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the EU biodiversity headline indicators. The indicators are available on www.biodiversityindicators.be. Flanders is a densely populated and economically prosperous region in the northern part of Belgium. It is located in the Western European lowland and belongs almost entirely to the Atlantic biogeographic region. Nearly a quarter of the area is urbanised and about half of its surface is occupied by agriculture. The Flemish landscape is the most fragmented in Europe.Very specific habitats degrade to more common, usually nutrient-rich habitats. As a consequence, many rare species, restricted to these specific habitats, are declining. Freshwater biodiversity declined sharply during the last century, although a significant recovery has been noticed during the last decade in the larger rivers. Woodland birds have also fared better in recent times.
