DescriptionEstonia NBSAP identified several key areas where it was neccessary for the country to develop capacity to conserve and manage the use of biodiversity. However, certain constraints did not permit delineation of specific mechanisms needed to investigate these capacity building needs. As the biodiversity clearing house mechanism is not yet established in Estonia, the project will build up a national network for exchange of biodiversity information.
