NBSAPs 2.0: Mainstreaming Biodiversity and Development. Second International Workshop, July 2013
The second international workshop of the NBSAPs 2.0: Mainstreaming Biodiversity and Development project (2012-2015)brought together representatives from seven African countries to review progress to date in revising their National Biodiversity Strategies and Actions Plans (NBSAPs), explore the extent to which their existing national development plans (NDPs) address biodiversity concerns, and build business cases for mainstreaming biodiversity and development to improve outcomes for both biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction. This report outlines their progress to date and key lessons shared.
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.
