I have worked on issues of biodiversity conservation policy and implementation for the past 20 plus years as Head of IUCN Regional Biodiversity Programme-Asia, Coordinator of Biodiplomacy Programme of United Nations University (UNU-IAS), Chief of Biodiversity, land Law and Governance Unit at UNEP (DELC), Chairman of National Biodiversity Authority (NBA) in India.

During my career I have supported more than dozen countries prepare the NBSAPs, led the efforts in China to develop 3 sub-national (Provincial) BSAPs.

My most recent work related to NBSAP is the interim review of post 2010 NBSAPs, a report that I co-authored with Mr. Christian Prip of FNI. I also coordinated the South and Southeast Asia Biodiversity Planning Support Programme (BPSP) and authored several publications on biodiversity planning, mainstreaming and implementation across sectors and programmes.
