At the beginning of the 6NR process, we challenged Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity to double the number of maps used from your 5NR to your 6NR. Are you on track to meet this challenge? We have exciting news for you! Using the UN Biodiversity Lab, and the global datasets available within it, we created 18 draft biodiversity status maps for your country.
The Government of Seychelles-UNDP-GEF Protected Area Finance and Outer Islands projects hosted a Business Planning workshop for Protected Areas in Seychelles in September 2017. In preparation for this training, a database containing examples of terrestrial and marine business plans from around the world and guidelines for their development was produced.

Myanmar’s future is directly linked to how it manages its wealth of natural resources. During this period of transition to a democratic government, the future of the country’s biodiversity is central to how it will emerge from years of isolation. The Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry is using the opportunity provided by the CBD’s Aichi Targets to revise its National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP). This process involves engaging with local stakeholders across the country to expand the role of civil society in planning for and managing biodiversity.
In cooperation with UNEP/GEF, MOECAF has formulated National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP) with the multi-consultation process. The NBSAP has been adopted by the State on 3rd May 2012.

The development of NBSAP will facilitate the framework for the sustainable use of biological resources and Myanmar’s obligations to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
