This is the recording of the second week of Part 2 of the MOOC on “Introduction to Resilience for Development: Applying Resilience Thinking to National Biodiversity Plans”
The second week of Part 2 of the MOOC on “Introduction to Resilience for Development: Applying Resilience Thinking to National Biodiversity Plans” began with a highly interactive webinar, titled “Applying Resilience Thinking to National Biodiversity Plans - The South African Experience” and prepared by Wilma Lutsch, Director of Biodiversity Conservation in the South African Department of Environmental Affairs. Both the webinar and the Questions and Answers sections were delivered by Marcela Torres, our English facilitator, due to technical issues when trying to connect with Wilma Lutsch.
Participants were very active and submitted several questions dealing with different aspects of National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs). One participant, Hanah Al-Samaraie, from the Convention on Migratory Species, asked how countries can align their NBSAPs so that animals that migrate across borders are adequately covered by all range states. She also offered to share on the NBSAP Forum the guidelines from the Convention on Migratory Species on NBSAP integration, which you can find here: http://nbsapforum.net/#read-thread/3059
