NBSAPs 2.0: Mainstreaming Biodiversity and Development — Defining and assessing success in mainstreaming
This Background Paper was prepared to inform the 3rd International Workshop of the NBSAPs 2.0: Mainstreaming Biodiversity and Development project, that took place in Namibia, July 2014. It draws on reviews of the mainstreaming targets and indicators of selected NBSAPs from countries at different stages of their mainstreaming process, and the approaches to assessing the success of mainstreaming biodiversity and other issues into development. Recommendations are provided to provoke thinking among those responsible for NBSAPs about how they might assess success within their own individual country contexts.
This Darwin Initiative and BMZ-funded project supported African countries to use their revised national biodiversity and strategy action plans (NBSAPs) as a vehicle for integrating biodiversity into development policy and planning.
