Resource Type: 

The aim of the UNEP Sourcebook is to provide national focal points of the Biodiversity-related Conventions and other stakeholders working on these conventions with options to achieve enhanced implementation of the conventions through strengthening cooperation.

The Sourcebook has been developed as part of the UNEP project Improving the effectiveness of and cooperation among biodiversity-related conventions and exploring opportunities for further synergies, funded by the European Union and the Government of Switzerland.

It gives practical advice for achieving synergies among the Biodiversity-related Conventions at national and regional levels, by presenting key lessons learnt form a range of different approaches that enhance cooperation and coordination among national focal points and other key stakeholders in different countries and regions.
