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.

    Conservation Gemstones: Developing A Brand Differentiator For Gemstones Mined Responsibly In Mixed Use Protected Areas

    Artisanal mining continues to be a major challenge in protected areas, as enforcement is hard to undertake. Through appropriate partnerships with the private sector, gemology labs can develop a brand differentiation program whereby revenues from jewelry that contains responsibly mined gems (that can be chemically traced through gemological techniques) are partially channeled back into conservation. This idea was developed in partnership with Gemological Institute of America and University of Basel’s Laurent Cartier.

    Sustainable Production For Biodiversity Conservation – Voluntary Standards And Certification To Reduce The Impacts Of Production On The Great Barrier Reef

    Voluntary standards, combined with independent certification, are widely used to ‘internalize’ social and environmental impacts in markets, offering recognition for producers and information for consumers. Multi-stakeholder roundtables exist for forest and agricultural commodities and fisheries, among others, with certified production gaining significant market share in some cases.

    The Great Barrier Reef Strategic Assessment – Towards A Holistic, Long-Term Approach To Protected Area Management

    The Great Barrier Reef is an amazing natural treasure and one of the most precious ecosystems on Earth. It is critical to the cultural, economic and social wellbeing of more than one million people who live in its catchment and is valued by the national and international community. In light of increasing pressures, and concerns raised by the World Heritage Committee on the impacts of development in 2011, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority worked with the Queensland Government and the Commonwealth Department of the Environment to undertake a comprehensive strategic assessment.

    Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEAs) For Reconciling Development Challenges

    Strategic assessments provide the opportunity to identify and deliver regional conservation priorities and desired outcomes at a landscape scale with an explicit focus on ecologically sustainable development principles. Strategic environmental assessment (SEA) is the practice of environmental impact assessment at the planning, policy or regulation development stage. Strategic assessments provide an alternative approach to project by project environmental assessment to incorporate landscape scale assessment and multi-jurisdictional partnerships.
