National Capacity Development Plans

As part of the process to develop and/or update their national biodiversity strategies and action plans (NBSAP), some Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity prepared national capacity development plans or strategies to support implementation, either as a chapter / section within their NBSAP or as standalone documents.
