Mainstreaming biodiversity in development and the Sustainable Development Goals: sharing and developing workable solutions
This workshop report summarises key issues emerging from an event at the thirteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in Cancun, Mexico, December 2016 (CBD CoP 13). The workshop aimed to:
1) Take stock of existing biodiversity mainstreaming initiatives
2) Share case studies of how governments are linking National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs) and biodiversity considerations with sectoral priorities, development planning and Sustainable Development Goal implementation processes
3) Share examples of successful and less successful approaches, solutions to identified barriers, and how better collaboration amongst international and national organisations can help to increase mainstreaming impacts.
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.
