Fiji National Biodiversity Planning to Support the Implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity 2011-2020 Strategic Plan in Fiji
This project is part of the second generation of Biodiversity Enabling Activities under the Global Environment Facility. Fiji has been Party to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) since 25 February 1993. The project addresses the country's need to continue to fulfill its obligations under the CBD, with particular focus on the Convention's Article 6 and the CBD COP Decision X/2. Above all, the project is a significant contribution to Fiji's efforts towards implementing the CBD Strategic Plan 2011-2020 at the national level.
Project Objectives and Outcomes
The objective of the project is to integrate Fiji's obligations under the CBD into its national development and sectoral planning frameworks through a renewed, gender-sensitive and pariticpatory 'biodiversity planning' and strategising process, in a manner that is in line with the global guidance contained in the CBD's Strategic Plan for 2011-2020.
In order to achieve the above objective, three outcomes are expected from the project:
- A participative stocktaking exercise on biodiversity planning takes place and national biodiversity targets are development in response to the global Aichi Targets.
- The NBSAP is revised/updated and fully integrates new aspects of the CBD strategic plan, such as mainstreaming and anchoring the implementation of the plan into national development frameworks, valuing ecosystem services and promoting ecosystem-based adaptation and resilience.
- National frameworks for resource mobilisation, Convention reporting and exchange menchanisms are established and strengthened.
