New Research Report on Development and Implementation of National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plans (NBSAPs): Toward Realization of Societies in Harmony with Nature

The United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) and the University of Tokyo Integrated Research System for Sustainability Science (UT-IR3S) recently published the full report from “a two-year research project from 2016 to 2018 to review and analyze existing National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs), examining how integrated approaches in production landscapes and seascapes are incorporated into NBSAPs, and how countries implement NBSAPs, other relevant policies and projects by conducting literature review and analysis, and holding the international workshop.” This research project, an IPSI collaborative activity, aims to identify experiences and lessons learned and key messages to be shared with CBD parties to support future NBSAP revisions and policy development.
