Ten steps to biodiversity mainstreaming
How do you go about getting biodiversity needs integrated into the development process? This guide presents ten key steps to biodiversity mainstreaming derived from the experience and good practice of participants of the first NBSAPs 2.0 Mainstreaming Biodiversity and Development project workshop held in Maun, Botswana in November 2012. The steps were agreed and endorsed by the African Leadership Group on Biodiversity and Development Mainstreaming established by the project as an open voluntary body. They are an annex to the Maun Statement on Biodiversity and Development Mainstreaming, which can also be found on this site.
This Darwin Initiative and BMZ-funded project is supporting African countries to use their revised national biodiversity and strategy action plans (NBSAPs) as a vehicle for integrating biodiversity into development policy and planning.
