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.

    Utilizing Spatial Planning for Sustainable Development | Insights from Serbia’s 5th National Report to CBD

    Serbia’s Fifth National Report (5NR) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) highlights the success of Serbia’s Republic Agency for Spatial Planning (SASP) in integrating and harmonizing Serbia’s ecological, economic and social development, based on the principles of sustainability. SASP achieves this goal by informing policy and development decisions through local, regional and national level spatial plans. The success of SASP corroborates the importance of having spatial planning integrated into national development policies and plans.  


    The Albatross Task Force: Working With The Fishing Industry To Save Ocean Wanderers

    Hundreds of thousands of seabirds are killed accidentally every year in commercial marine fisheries. This includes globally threatened species, such as an estimated 100,000 albatrosses. This bycatch of non-target species is a common side-effect of the fishing industry. The Albatross Task Force (ATF) is the world’s first international team of seabird bycatch mitigation instructors. Since 2006, it has successfully reduced the incidental bycatch of albatrosses, petrels and other seabirds in targeted fisheries, by introducing simple and practical fishing techniques and mitigation measures.

    Petro Tsymbal, L'Ukraine La Gouvernance C'est L'essenciel Dans Les Processus De Création Des APs

    L'Ukraine se trouve au centre de l'Europe et occupe le territoire presque 6% de l' Europe et possède 35% de la biodiversité européenne. Comme dans beaucoup de pays la biodiversité dans mon pays continue à disparaître. Dans le pays on voit l'expansion des terres agricoles c'est 72% (le standard c'est 60-65%), on cultive 53,8% des terres (mais le standard - 40%). Les forêts occupent 15% de territoire mais selon les standards il faut avoir 20% et plus encore.

    Changements Climatiques: L’adaptation Dans PN Karavasta Entre Les Deltas Des Fleuves Shkumbin-Seman

    Résumé de la meilleure pratique:
    Le besoin d’adaptation aux changements climatiques dans la Zone protégée (Ramsar 1995) entre les estuaires des rivières Shkumbin-Seman et surtout dans la Lagune de Karavasta, dans le cadre d’un développement durable. Cette Lagune constitue l’une des zones les plus humides en Albanie avec une variété d’habitats. Là-bas se trouvent presque tous les principaux types d’habitats tels que: marins/côtiers; ceux de la lagune; des marais; des estuaires des fleuves; des forets et des champs.

    Energy And Conservation: A Robust Management Framework For Oil And Gas Developments In Natural And Protected Environments.

    In the last couple of decades, the development of practices and use of tools for managing the interaction of oil and gas developments with the surrounding natural environment have been steadily improving; these are now being incorporated into decision-making processes throughout the oil and gas project lifecycle.

    Mining And Protected Areas: Working Hard Towards Environmental Risk Reduction And Net Social Profit - Perspectives From Civil Society

    It is clear that the balance between private sector interest, societal interest and conservation interest within Protected Areas is different from that outside of these Protected Areas. Within the Protected Area’s the conservation interest should have extra weight. In order to arrive at a strengthened Protected Area system (state, private or community managed) the following actions are urgently needed:


    The Significance Of Protecting Natural Capital In Greening The World's Economies

    Whilst the Earth’s diversity of species and habitats must be preserved first and foremost for their intrinsic value, the solution (from a socio-economic perspective) lies in recognizing and valuing nature for the ecological services it provides – upon which societies and economies are built. Nature, or “Natural Capital” – biodiversity, ecosystems and ecosystem services – must be preserved and restored as the foundation of human societies and economies.

    Protected areas sometimes struggle with effective management plans, and tensions may arise between various stakeholders.

    Conservation On The High Seas: Mainstreaming Biodiv. Into Intern. Policies And Fishing Practices

    Accidental capture (“bycatch”) of a wide range of non-target species is a significant issue for the fishing industry, and for marine biodiversity. Bycatch has a severe impact on many charismatic marine species such as albatrosses, cetaceans, sharks and sea turtles, which often cross vast distances and can be highly vulnerable to bycatch. Every year longline and trawl fishing fleets kill an estimated 300,000 seabirds, driving some albatross species towards extinction.
