ABSTRACT

The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD) encourages the use of the City Biodiversity Index (CBI) as a monitoring tool to assist local authorities in evaluating their progress in urban biodiversity conservation. The CBI has been applied to conserve the city biodiversity. This study has developed the City Ecological Soundness Index (CESI) based on the CBI and Korean city characteristics. The CESI includes total of 12 indicators grouped in three categories, which are ‘biodiversity,’ ‘ecosystem services’ and ‘governance and management.’ 85cities in Korea were classified according to the city size and type. 18 cities have applicable biotope map, which were analyzed in the CESI pilot study. The CESI will contribute to collect and manage biodiversity data systematically and to promote biodiversity-related actions.
