Maun Statement on Biodiversity and Development Mainstreaming

PDF  G03695.pdf (1.4 MB)

The Strategic Plan for Biodiversity (2011-2020) urges the mainstreaming of biodiversity and development – particularly as part of the process of revising National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs). In this context, an African Leadership Group (ALG) on Biodiversity and Development Mainstreaming was established as an open voluntary body at the first international meeting of the NBSAPs 2.0 Project in Maun, Botswana, November 2012. The Maun Statement outlines the ALG's commitment to providing leadership on advancing biodiversity and development mainstreaming, and identifies ten key steps to integrating biodiversity concerns into defined sectors and development goals, through a variety of approaches and mechanisms, so as to achieve sustainable biodiversity and development outcomes.
