This site-level assessment tool enables users to determine if an individual site qualifies as an ‘other effective area-based conservation measure’ (OECM) by assessing it against the CBD definition and criteria (CBD decision 14/8) and IUCN guidance. The tool is an annex to the IUCN-WCPA Technical Report on OECMs (see key references, below), which includes definitions and explanations of how the CBD criteria are linked to the criteria in this tool.
