The Global Biodiversity Standard is a new, site-based certification methodology designed to assess the impacts of tree planting, reforestation, and sustainable agricultural initiatives on biodiversity, and to mentor practitioners to achieve better biodiversity outcomes. The methodology includes remote-sensing and ground surveys carried out by ‘GBS hubs’ with offices in Brazil, India, Kenya, Madagascar, Peru, and Uganda located in already well-established biodiversity and ecological restoration organisations. The development of the GBS is being developed by Botanic Gardens Conservation International, the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER), and other technical partners from CIFOR-ICRAF, Ecosia, IUCN Species Survival Commission, Plan Vivo, Reforest’Action, TRAFFIC, and
