Technical Support for NBSAP Development, Revision, and Implementation

COP 10 Decision X/2 adopting the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020, urged Parties and governments to develop national and regional targets and to review and update their National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plans (NBSAPs) to align with the new Strategic Plan. The decision also emphasized the need for capacity-building activities, in particular, for developing country Parties, in order to implement the Strategic Plan.

Consequently, the Japan Biodiversity Fund (JBF) has supported the development, revision/updating and implementation of NBSAPs in several ways:

  1. Capacity-Building Workshops
  2. On-demand individual NBSAP review and advice for Parties
  3. NBSAP Process Project
  4. Pilot Projects Programme
  5. Voluntary Peer Review
  6. NBSAP Forum-Global Partnership

ABT 17 These activities supported the progress of Aichi Biodiversity Target 17:
‘By 2015 each Party has developed, adopted as a policy instrument, and has commenced implementing an effective, participatory, and updated national biodiversity strategy and action plan.’
