The CITES Trade Data Dashboards were launched on the CITES website on 1 July 2010 the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the entry into force of the Convention.
The CITES Trade Data Dashboards are a new, interactive and dynamic way of viewing the trade data submitted by CITES Parties in their annual reports to the Convention. The Global dashboard displays global trade trends (e.g. global trade in live reptiles), whereas the National dashboard shows information by country.
The dashboards allow the user to view data in several ways, including by:
type of specimens (e.g. skins or live);
source (e.g. wild, captive-bred or artificially propagated);
year range (in five-year intervals);
top species or families in trade over time; and
top importers and exporters.
The CITES Trade Data Dashboards have been developed by UNEP-WCMC on behalf of the CITES Secretariat. They are currently available in English.
