Draft Biodiversity Status Maps for Your 6NR – Swaziland

At the beginning of the 6NR process, we challenged Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity to double the number of maps used from your 5NR to your 6NR. Are you on track to meet this challenge? We have exciting news for you!  Using the UN Biodiversity Lab, and the global datasets available within it, we created 18 draft biodiversity status maps for your country.

Equator Initiative Case Study – Swazi Indigenous Products

Swazi Indigenous Products is a member-owned natural seed oil enterprise that provides jobs and income to rural women, while protecting the ecosystems of the Lubombo region of Swaziland. Women are supported to sustainably cultivate and collect wild marula, trichilia, and ximenia seeds. The initiative also runs a tree-planting program and offers environmental education training for its over 2,400 seed collectors. The seeds collected by members are processed to produce seed oils, which are then used in the production of skin care products.
