The pan-European initiative, SEBI 2010 (Streamlining European 2010 Biodiversity Indicators), was launched in 2004 to develop a European set of biodiversity indicators for assessing and informing about progress in halting biodiversity loss. The European Environment Agency has worked on developing this set since 2005, in collaboration with countries, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, the European Commission and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
The report contains detailed description of each of the indicators, complete with methodological data on how to calculate and use them. It is available in http://reports.eea.europa.eu/technical_report_2007_11/en
