Implementation StatusThe thematic assessment phase of the project is progressing steadily. A number of key stakeholders have been consulted and the information generated has been processed into raw thematic profiles for each thematic area. These profiles have been initially reviewed by the NCSA steering committee however they still require validation and editing by the technical working groups before they will complete. It is expected that the TWGs will be meeting throughout the 2nd quarter. The student attachment funded by the NCSA project completed her attachment in the beginning of February and was instrumental in the production of an NCSA informational brochure which was distributed to key stakeholders and NGOs. The project also jointly funded a local coordinator to the UNCBD COP 8 in Brazil as part of our biodiversity negotiations and capacity building initiative.
