National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP) Revision Process
The Swaziland Environment Authority on behalf of the Government of Swaziland is currently undertaking an exercise to revise the National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAPs) to be in-line with the adopted global biodiversity strategy 2011-2020. The NBSAP is a process by which the country can plan to address the threats to biodiversity. As such, they are principal instruments for the implementation of the Convention both at the national and at the global level, and they are increasingly relevant to the other biodiversity-related conventions and agreements which contribute to the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity and its Aichi targets.
Swaziland received $220,000.00 funding from GEF for the revision of the NBSAP and the preparation of the fifth National report to CBD. A revised NBSAP is envisaged to be complete by September, 2014.
