How do you go about getting biodiversity needs integrated into the development process? This guide presents ten key steps to biodiversity mainstreaming derived from the experience and good practice of participants of the first NBSAPs 2.0 Mainstreaming Biodiversity and Development project workshop held in Maun, Botswana in November 2012. The steps were agreed and endorsed by the African Leadership Group on Biodiversity and Development Mainstreaming established by the project as an open voluntary body.
The biodiversity mainstreaming process is divided into ten steps, with each step using a variety of tools. The information is not meant to be exhaustive, as each situation will vary according to country or region and over time. However, it should serve as a useful starting point and enable you to follow a simplified process while consulting other sources for detail.
