Assessments, reports and guidelines

Freshwater Biodiversity Assessments

The FFSG works in conjunction with the Freshwater Biodiversity Unit (part of the IUCN Global Species Programme). One of the key areas of involvement is assisting with regional assessments of freshwater biodiversity, which provide a factual basis for efforts to conserve and manage freshwater biodiversity. FFSG members have contributed to all regional assessments to date and several comprehensive assessments have been completed; all including freshwater fishes. The aim for the future is to carry out this work on a global scale.

Regional assessments:
Freshwater biodiversity assessmentsThe Diversity of Life in African Freshwaters: Under Water, Under Threat
Assessment of the socio-economic value of biodiversity in Northern African region
The Status and Distribution of Freshwater Biodiversity in Central Africa
The Status and Distribution of Freshwater Biodiversity in Northern Africa
The Status and Distribution of Freshwater Biodiversity in Western Africa
The Status and Distribution of Freshwater Biodiversity in Southern Africa
The Status and Distribution of Freshwater Biodiversity in Eastern Africa
Madagascar Endemic Freshwater Fish Assessment report
The Status and Distribution of the Freshwater Biodiversity in the Arabian Peninsula
