Second International Workshop Report: Mainstreaming Biodiversity into Development Policy and Planning
The ‘Mainstreaming Biodiversity into Development Policy and Planning’ initiative (2015-2017) aims to make best use of revised National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs) to improve the ways that development actors and processes handle the opportunities and constraints associated with biodiversity. The main objectives of the initiative’s second international workshop included discussing project progress, sharing information on the Convention on Biological Diversity and biodiversity mainstreaming event, reviewing mainstreaming capacity tools, outlining post-project priorities and communicating key messages from the workshop in the form of a joint ‘Accra Statement’. This report summarises the workshop’s proceedings.
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.
