Search Best Practices

The NBSAP Forum contains an extensive library of best practices related to developing and implementing NBSAPs. Our purpose is to enable countries to share and learn about effective, field-tested techniques and solutions. We work closely with our members to document the problem addressed, for whom, the primary actions, how they achieved results, and the solution they achieved. Search for or submit your best pratice here.

    Transboundary Collaboration: Reducing Conflicts Around Fisherie

    This best practice describes how transboundary collaboration can reduce ongoing conflicts and sustain fisheries management on the Akagera river located at the border of Rwanda (Akagera National Park) and Tanzania. It came from my experiences working on a fishery project in Akagera national Park in 2015, where illegal fishing by Tanzanian fishers was a big threat to the conservation of wildlife in ANP. But it was hard to alleviate because of the lack of collaboration and good management strategies of fisheries resources.

    Potential Ecosystem Services Models For Understanding The Motivation For Resource Extraction In Madagascar

    We will highlight experiences doing research in the Makira Natural Park, northeastern Madagascar that investigated the ecosystem provisioning service value of wildlife as food and botanical ethnomedicines. Understanding the monetary value of faunal and floral biodiversity in this region may help to understand the local conservation psychology and what motivates people to harvest beyond the limits of sustainability. Specifically, our results provide an estimate of the cost of offsetting economic losses to local populations from the enforcement of conservation policies.

    When Protected Areas Provide Life And Ensure Development: Myth Or Reality?

    To ensure the balance between development and conservation, government at national and local levels, businesses and local population must develop and implement suitable tools including policies, guidelines and plans. The development of these tools must be participatory for all stakeholders to own and use them efficiently. The value of PAs must be ascertained and incorporated into these tools in order to make wise trade-offs between conservation and development.

    Creating Markets For Watershed Services In Nyungwe National Park, SW Of Rwanda

    Nyungwe National Park is globally recognized for its conservation value as the largest protected mountain forest block remaining in east and central Africa. It is also a major catchment for the nation of Rwanda, providing most of its water for drinking, manufacturing), and hydro-electricity generation. WCS has been working with the Government of Rwanda to:

    Ambatovy Biodiversity Offset Program and Qit Madagascar Minerals Landscape Approaches: How impact mitigation in mining can contribute to national conservation goals in Madagascar

    In alignment with national EIA regulations, and IFC performance standards on sustainability and the biodiversity conservation, Ambatovy and Qit Madagascar Mining have combined environmental and social impact assessments, a mitigation hierarchy and adaptive management to achieve “no net loss,” and preferably a net gain, for biodiversity.The mitigation hierarchy includes the processes of avoidance, minimization and restoration, with offsetting, to compensate for residual impacts.

    Diversifying Coastal Livelihoods Within A Community Managed Marine Protected Area: Lessons Learned From A Public-Private Aquaculture Venture In Southern Madagascar

    Coastal communities in southwest Madagascar depend on marine resources for income and food. Community-based aquaculture is showing promise as a way to diversify livelihoods for this region. A partnership developed in 2009 between conservation NGOs and a private sector seafood export company led to the creation of a mariculture project focusing on sea cucumbers (sandfish: Holothuria scabra) and red seaweed (cottonii: Kappaphycus alvarezii).
