The first series of regional and sub-regional capacity-development workshops was organized during 2008 and 2009, in response to decision VIII/8 (paragraph 6), with the purpose to strengthen national capacity for the development, implementation, review and update of NBSAPs, and for integrating biodiversity concerns into relevant sectors and cross-sectoral strategies, such as poverty eradication strategies. This was accomplished through, for example, the exchange of experience in these areas and training in the use of relevant tools and mechanisms. The workshops provided an opportunity for countries to identify ways and means of overcoming challenges in the implementation of NBSAPs. The results of the workshops also informed the ongoing review of implementation of goals 2 and 3 of the Strategic Plan considered by the ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties in May 2008.
