Implementación
Indicate and briefly describe any actions that have been carried out to implement this Resolution: 
AcciónDescripciónStatus
Influencia política/promoción de políticas• The RLI was included in the 2017 SDG report with data for each country updated in the UN SDG indicator database • The RLI and various disaggregations were included in the First Order Draft of the IPBES Global Assessment, with the indicators extrapolated to 2020 to assess progress towards the Aichi Targets. • RLIs, disaggregated to national level, were included in the ‘country profiles’ on the Integrated Biodiversity Assessment Tool, and made available to CBD national focal points, among others On-going
Actividades técnicas/científicas• A Red List Index for Wild Relatives of domesticated species of birds and mammals was calculated and a paper will soon be submitted for publication (McGowan et al in prep) • All bird species were reassessed by BirdLife International for the 206 IUCN Red List (the 7th complete assessment), allowed the RLI to be updated to 2016 for birds • Progress was made towards the 3rd complete assessment for mammals, but its completion has been delayed, again, to 2018 • R code has been developed to calculate national RLIs based on a disaggregation of the global index, with each species weighted by the proportion of its range falling within the country • Funding was secured from the EU for the INSPIRE4Nature project, led by CNRS, which wil include funding for a PhD to work on RLI methodologies. • Fields for capturing RLI data are now included in SIS.On-going
Indique cuáles han sido los resultados/logros obtenidos en el marco de las actividades realizadas: 
The RLI has been reinstated as a Tier 1 indicator for the SDGs, and was included in the 2017 SDG report. The RLI is well profiled in the IPBES Global Assessment, which will in turn feed into the Global Biodiversity Outlook 5.
¿Qué esfuerzos se están llevando a cabo para superar dichos obstáculos?: 
The lack of priority and funding for reassessments is hindering progress in updating the RLI, with the 2nd amphibian assessment still apparently years away, and the mammal reassessment delayed again.
