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.

    Development Offsets – Can They Complete The Jigsaw To Connect Public Reserves Via Conservation Corridors On Private Land?

    This case study discusses the great potential connectivity outcomes when development offsets are required in a landscape which has a foundation of groups committed towards achieving a conservation “corridor”. In this example, the development was the loss of vegetation required for the duplication of the Hume Highway (by Roads and Maritime NSW) and the “corridor” is the priority landscape of the Slopes to Summit partnership (within the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative area) in southern NSW.

    Embed Tailored And Fully Consulted Mitigation Measures Into A Project’s EMP That Accurately Reflect Due Consideration Of Potential PA Impacts

    To address the emerging shortage of bulk water supply to Maputo and surrounding areas, the project handled the protected area concern by including a number of project implementation measures in the EMP to mitigate the potential adverse impacts on the protected area, including: an inundation preparation plan, reservoir management program, environmental water release regime, anti-poaching measures and environmental monitoring plan.

    ‘Balancing Marine Conservation And Development - Challenges And Solutions For Large Scale Marine Protected Areas In The Pacific Islands Region’

    Large scale marine protected areas must avoid inequitable costs on developing States. In some contexts, this can be achieved through careful design and complementarity with fisheries management regimes to avoid significant reductions in fisheries revenue or impacts on local community livelihoods and food security, and financial investments to mitigate management costs. In other circumstances, rights based management frameworks can be utilised to share costs through the transferral of fishing effort with minimal impact on revenue.

    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.

    Information Systems For Biodiversity And Protected Area Management – Understanding Interactions Between Conservation And Livelihoods

    To improve the long term conservation of biodiversity in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) regions by providing better, more relevant and more accessible information for protected areas management, setting up a network of regional BIOPAMA observatories, developing a Reference Information System to host and facilitate the exchange of data, and to provide the associated capacity building to contribute to, and effectively use, these tools.

    Integrating The Table Mountain National Park Into The City Of Cape Town – Some Lessons From Experience

    Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) dramatically improved its ability to link its priority conservation tasks with the sustainable development needs of Cape Town and its citizens, to the advantage of both the Park and the City’s citizens. This story illustrates the importance of a functioning governance system and a commitment to finding mutual interest between the goals of conservation and development.

    Safeguarding Mumbai’s Ecological Security

    Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) and other protected areas around it are vital lifelines and are crucial to safeguard Mumbai’s water security. But this is hardly known to the population of Mumbai. With the management of SGNP, we have launched an extensive, multi-faceted outreach campaign to increase public awareness and win public support for SGNP.

    Offsets And Protected Areas: Can Biodiversity Offsets Play A Role In Reaching Conservation Goals By Strengthening The Protected Area Network

    As the guidance on biodiversity offset implementation continues to evolve, there is the potential for offsets to benefit existing protected area networks through improving connectivity between sites and across landscapes, promoting biodiversity and ecosystem service representation, contributing to national biodiversity targets and supporting sustainable development objectives.

    How Business Can Contribute To Landscape Connectivity Through Good Biodiversity Management

    In collaboration with the cement and aggregates sector over the last 7 years, IUCN has developed tools for integrating biodiversity into extraction planning, decision-making and operations. These tools are aimed at public and private sector and encourage collaboration for improved biodiversity management and land use planning.


    1. To present three tools that have been developed to encourage the uptake of better policies and practices for biodiversity management in extraction sites

    The Solution To Sustaining The World Protected Areas Lies In Their Realizing Their Economic Promise And Potential As Exemplified By ‘Global Ecosphere Retreats
