Entebbe Statement on Biodiversity in Development Planning
The Entebbe Statement presents a summary of the key conclusions of the African Leadership Group (ALG) on Biodiversity and Development Mainstreaming following the second international workshop of the NBSAPs 2.0 Project in Uganda, July 2013. Concluding that biodiversity mainstreaming should be informed as much by development needs, potentials and conditions as by those of biodiversity conservation, it lists key benefits of biodiversity to socio-economic development, and identifies key principles for mainstreaming biodiversity into national development processes and plans.
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.
