    Seychelles Experience With The NBSAP Peer Review Process And Aichi Target Alignment

    In 2012, the Seychelles began work on its second NBSAP (“NBSAP 2”). The project was financed by UNDP-GEF and is being executed by Seychelles Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change (MEECC). Three major NBSAP-related studies were undertaken:

    Seychelles Debt To Climate Change Adaptation And Nature Swap Initiative

    The aim of this initiative is to raise financing to address climate change impact on coastal and marine biodiversity, and at the same time build the resilience of these ecosystems by reducing the anthropological pressures on them. The project will involve the creation of a large marine protected area covering approximately 30% of Seychelles Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Through the elaboration of a Marine Spatial Plan (MSP), 50% of the protected area will be a no-take zone. The MSP is currently going through a stakeholder consultative process.

    Financing Conservation: How Seychelles Is Opening Its Books And Making The Case For Biodiversity And Protected Areas

    UNDP and the Government of Seychelles are implementing an ambitious conservation programme in Seychelles, funded primarily by the GEF with help from other partners. Two projects of a very specific nature stand out. A new UNDP-GEF protected area finance project aims to improve the financial sustainability and strategic cohesion of Seychelles’ protected area system, while also dealing with emerging threats and risks to biodiversity in a shifting national economic environment.
