This workshop brought together over 85 representatives from the biodiversity and development co-operation communities to share experience and insights on the key opportunities, tools and challenges to mainstreaming biodiversity into development policies and planning and into development co-operation. This website provides a summary of the discussions and the slideshow presentations from the day. Case studies are provided by Costa Rica, Ecuador, South Africa, Viet Nam, Uganda and Brazil. The perspective of development co-operation providers (especially bilateral donors) is also illustrated. The workshop found that challenges remain particularly in the area of monitoring and evaluation, in the implementation of laws, and in ensuring engagement for the long time periods needed for effective mainstreaming (at least 10-15 years).
