Harare Statement on using NBSAPs as a tool for mainstreaming biodiversity into national and sectoral development policies
In November 2015, representatives from the governments of Botswana, Ghana, Malawi, Namibia, Seychelles, Uganda,
Zambia and Zimbabwe gathered in Harare, Zimbabwe, for the international workshop of the Mainstreaming Biodiversity in Development Policy and Planning initiative. The joint ‘Harare Statement’ presents lessons and priorities on using NBSAPs as a tool for mainstreaming biodiversity into national and sectoral development policies in an era of Sustainable Development Goals and the green economy.
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.
