Article on Legal Preparedness For National Biodiversity Strategies And Action Plans

Resource Type: 

This article discusses the existing and emerging linkages between biodiversity and the law, briefly. It acknowledges that establishing strong legal preparedness is undeniably not an easy task, especially because, besides having biodiversity goals to achieve, countries have other competing legal priorities. This does not, however, circumvent the fact that establishing a ‘well-prepared’ legal system is possible and can largely contribute to safeguarding biodiversity. Timely setting of priorities, sharing of information, setting implementation timelines and making the overall process just and equitable are some of the key cornerstones identified for a well prepared legal system.
