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.

    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.

    The Renewables Grid Initiative: A Partnership Of NGOs And Transmission System Operators In Europe

    European countries are planning massive investments in renewable energy, which will mean that many more transmission lines will be needed to transport the energy produced. This is essential for reducing carbon emissions, but without careful planning, transmission lines can create a range of risks for biodiversity. The Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI) was launched in 2009 as a neutral platform, enabling Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and NGOs from across Europe to come together as equal partners.

    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.

    Post Conflict Recovery And Management Of Protected Areas

    Manas National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site is located in Assam province of Northeast India and is world renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and presence of a rich biodiversity that includes several endemic, rare and threatened wild animal species that are found nowhere else in the world. The park also witnessed more than 15 years of armed conflict that led to massive destruction of the Park infrastructure and decimation of wildlife population in recent history.

    Gestion Du Parc National La Visite

    La République d’Haïti se trouve dans l’hémisphère nord, spécifiquement dans le bassin de la Caraïbe, entre la mer des caraïbes et l’Océan Atlantique. Elle se situe entre 18°0’ et 20°6’ de latitude Nord et 71°20’ et 74°30’ de longitude Ouest (PNUE/MDE, 2010). Elle est également connue sous les appellations Quisqueya ou «Bohio». Avec une superficie de 27.750 km2elle partage avec la République Dominicaine l’ile d’Hispaniola qui est la deuxième plus grande en superficie dans la Caraïbe.

    Intern. Investment In Renewable Energy: Safeguarding Migrating Birds In Red Sea/Rift Valley Flyway

    At the end of the European summer, two million soaring birds head south towards Africa. Their route, along the Red Sea/Rift Valley flyway, is the second most important flyway for soaring birds in the world. However, just as these areas are essential to the birds’ survival, so too are they vital for human populations, and host a growing concentration of development and energy infrastructure. If power lines and wind turbines are poorly sited along the flyway, the cumulative impacts can add up to threaten entire bird populations.

    Mainstreaming Biodiversity Into Uganda’s National Development Plan

    In Uganda, the government uses the National Development Plan (NDP) planning framework to achieve medium and long-term development goals in country. All sectors have to mainstream their sectoral plans and programmes into the NDP. The National Biodiversity Strategy and Action (NBSAP) has also been mainstreamed into the NDP, so that it is part of and contributes to the country’s medium and long-term development process in Uganda. Communicating the value of NBSAPS outside of the Ministry of the Environment was critical to the success of the project.

    How ‘Sustainable Sourcing’ Can Support Biodiversity Conservation & Protected Areas: Examples From The Fashion Industry

    Making biodiversity conservation and protected areas relevant to business demands an integrated approach. It must integrate methods for measuring business impact and dependencies on nature, include clear communication on what this means for a business in terms of risk and opportunity, and involve collaboration to identify actions and define approaches that will underpin the business’s contribution to conservation.

    Working With Responsibility To Support Sustainable Solutions To The Freshwater Management

    One of the possibilities for recognizing the interdependence of humans and nature is through values and a framework of ethics. In the case of freshwater in New Zealand, various legal solutions have been proposed to settle Maori interests in water. One solution is the vesting of water as a ‘person’ in law, as in Whanganui and Te Urewera. The proposed sale of a hydroelectric company's state assets triggered a Maori claim to activate recognition of Maori interests in fresh water. The case took the argument that sales cannot proceed until Maori interests are settled.
