DescriptionThe principal objective of this enabling activity is to assist the Conseil National de l’Environment pour un Développement Durable (CNEDD) and the Government of Niger in preparing a National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (BSAP). The BSAP will define the current status of, pressures on, options for, and priority actions to ensure the conservation, sustainable use, and equitable sharing of its biological diversity. The project will build on the existing knowledge base to elaborate the BSAP through a process of participatory planning and stakeholder consultation. This will also enable Niger to meet its obligations under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) by preparing its first country report to the Conference of the Parties. The BSAP will be a component of the CNEDD, which is to be formulated by CNEDD.
Implementation StatusThe project was completed in December 1998. The Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (BSAP) and a satisfactory final report were submitted. The BSAP approval by the government was hindered by the unrest situation in the country. It is expected that with normalization of the political situation, the BSAP will be approved soon.
