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.

    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.

    Seychelles Experience With The NBSAP Peer Review Process And Aichi Target Alignment

    In 2012, the Seychelles began work on its second NBSAP (“NBSAP 2”). The project was financed by UNDP-GEF and is being executed by Seychelles Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change (MEECC). Three major NBSAP-related studies were undertaken:


    1. Integrating a financing strategy and Aichi Target aligned action plan,
    2. Developing a capacity assessment and strategic action plan, and
    3. Challenges in climate-related biodiversity adaptation and mitigation.

    Financing Conservation: How Seychelles Is Opening Its Books And Making The Case For Biodiversity And Protected Areas

    UNDP and the Government of Seychelles are implementing an ambitious conservation programme in Seychelles, funded primarily by the GEF with help from other partners. Two projects of a very specific nature stand out. A new UNDP-GEF protected area finance project aims to improve the financial sustainability and strategic cohesion of Seychelles’ protected area system, while also dealing with emerging threats and risks to biodiversity in a shifting national economic environment.

    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.
