NBSAP Capacity Building Modules

A set of capacity building modules on national biodiversity strategies and action plans is available below. The capacity building package has been designed to be used for several types of capacity building purposes; however its main audience is expected to be National Focal Points of the Convention and other national staff responsible for implementation of the Convention. The Convention itself is a framework for identifying national action to be taken in accordance with national circumstances and capabilities to meet the objectives of the Convention.

The first series of modules was developed in 2007 through a collaborative effort of the United Nations Environment Programme, the Secretariat of the Convention and the United Nations University.

Each module will be made available at this location as it is revised. Your comments, input and/or questions are always welcome; please direct them to nbsap.support@cbd.int
