Workshop Content

A set of training modules on updating and revising NBSAPs and other resource materials have been developed. These provide the basis of the subject matter for the second series of Capacity-building Workshops on Updating and Revising NBSAPs in line with the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020. Each module comprises a PowerPoint presentation (based on the presentations being made at the workshops) as well as a written module (of around 20 pages) that provides more information and links to further resources. Additional presentations and written material are also provided.

(Note that this page provides access to this “generic” information; each presentation is tailored to each workshop and the actual presentations made at each of the workshops are available on the corresponding web pages.)
