Question 2

POWIB to provide opportunities for countries to implement 'on the ground' projects that tailored to address threats and issues affecting the overall health of biodiversity [#1044]
Kiribati has benefitted alot from accessing and tapping financial resources to implement both the PoWPA phase I and phase II projects. Such needs to be replicated for the POWIB. A global POWIB phase I and phase II projects need to be considered to assist SIDS, especially small island states, within the context of the global climate change problem.

Protecting, managing and sustainably using biodiversity is important as biodiversity is the bottom line of the economy, sustainable development, local livelihoods, human health and wellbeing, society and above all, also has important role in adaptation and mitigation to global climate change. The global POWIB projects, similar to the POWPA projects, as aforementioned, could consider some of these in its priority areas.
