Subnational Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (SBSAPs)

Increasingly, Subnational Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (SBSAPs) are being developed at state/provincial/territorial, local and cities levels. Greater attention is also being given to the development of Regional (supranational) Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (RBSAPs)

Decentralized planning serves as an effective support mechanism for implementing COP-10 decision X/2 and decision X/22 on, respectively, the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity (2011-2020) and the Plan of Action on Subnational Governments, Cities and Other Local Authorities for Biodiversity (2011-2020).

SBSAPs prepared by countries at subnational, local and cities levels, as well as information on activities being undertaken in this regard, are provided below where available.
