DescriptionThe principal objective of this enabling activity is to assist Zambia 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 share 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 Zambia to meet its obligations under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) by preparing its first country report to the Conference of Parties (COP). The BSAP will complement the NEAP, which was formulated under the supervision of MENR.
Implementation StatusRoy Hagen, GEF-UNDP, expert conducted the training in Jan/99. This enabled the team to prioritise the startegies & develop the action plan. Second National Workshop was held in April 1999 in Lusaka. The draft has been commented on by RH.
