Mainstreaming Biodiversity and Development: Guidance from African Experience 2012-17 draws on lessons from the African Leadership Group (ALG) for Biodiversity Mainstreaming, covering progress in eight African countries since 2012.
The guidance covers:
- Understand the ‘reciprocal’ mainstreaming process – biodiversity into development and development into biodiversity – so that the real linkages between people and nature, economy and ecology, are dealt with properly
- Find out more about helpful tools and approaches – that have been tested in African contexts
- Effectively and efficiently select, assemble, analyse and present compelling evidence on the links between biodiversity and national development priorities
- Make better NBSAPs and development plans – and use them better
- Develop a communication strategy to support these aims.
