National Biodiversity Strategy, Action Plan and the First National Report to the CBD

Project Summary

The aim of the project is to assist the country with the ability to formulate and manage sectoral and cross-sectoral programmes to meet the objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity through a cost effective approach within the context of national sustainable development efforts, and to report to the Convention on progress achieved in implementing agreed commitments. The activities stipulated in this project thus focus specifically on implementing Article 6 of the CBD and on the preparation of the first national report pursuant to Article 26 of the CBD, which were highlighted as programme priorities by the second meeting of the COP in its Decisions II/7 and II/17.
