FSM National Biodiversity Planning to Support the Implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity 2011-2020 Strategic Plan
This project is part of the second generation of Biodiversity Enabling Activities under the Global Environment Facility. The FSM has been a Party to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) since June 1994. The project is a significant contribution to the country's effort towards implementing the CBD Strategic Plan 2011-2020 at the national level. The project builds on the current status and achievement of the country with respect to biodiversity planning and reporting.
It aims to integrate the country's obligations under the CBD into its national development and sectoral planning frameworks through a renewed and participative 'biodiversity planning' and strategizing process. This process is expected to produce measurable targets for biodiversity conservation and sustainable use. It will equally ensure that the value of ecosystems' good and services, as well as the challenges and opportunities for ecosystem-based adaptation and resilience are taken into consideration in the process.
