NBSAPs: mainstreaming biodiversity and development
This Darwin project focuses on mainstreaming poverty issues into second generation National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs). All parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) are revising their NBSAPs over the next two years. The new Strategic Plan for Biodiversity stresses the importance of mainstreaming poverty issues and using these revised strategies as tools to help integrate biodiversity into development strategies, and vice-versa.
This project is being carried out in collaboration with UNEP-WCMC, the CBD Secretariat and the UNDP Poverty Environment Initiative. Focusing on Botswana, Malawi, Uganda, Namibia and The Seychelles, the project is intended to build African leadership in biodiversity mainstreaming through capacity building, tools development, technical support and peer-to-peer review.
The PCLG website will provide a key portal for keeping interested parties up to date with the project activities and for disseminating outputs. For more information you can also visit the project page on the DEFRA'a website.
