DescriptionThe project will help SEA, relevant government ministries, NGOs, local communities and research institutions to formulate a National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (BSAP) and the first country report to the COP. The BSAP will determine the current status of, pressures on, options and priority actions to ensure conservation and sustainable use of the country’s biodiversity. The enabling activity will be conducted to allow the BSAP to complement and to be integrated within existing frameworks, particularly the NEAP and the Memorandum of Understanding against Desertification, and the forthcoming National Development Strategy.
Implementation StatusHagen conducted a two day review with detailed written comments. It was found that major CBD obligations had been overlooked. Hagen spent one week in November working with a national consultant who had been hired to redraft the NBSAP. The new draft was to be reviewed by the steering committee in about February -- no confirmation on this received.
