Integrated Planning to Implement the CBD Strategic Plan and Increase Ecosystem Resilience to Climate Change
As of: May 2018
Objective and activities
This project will increase capacity to optimize land use planning to support biodiversity and climate change adaptation objectives. Through a combination of global reviews and in-country assessments, target countries will be provided with advice, guidance, and assistance in demonstration activities. The project results will provide recommendations for legal planning tools. Policy dialogues will attempt to ensure that the necessary political leadership can translate recommendations into implementation and sustained action in their countries. Knowledge products and tools will be made available to a wider audience of decision makers and stakeholders. Visibility of results and lessons will be ensured through participation and profiling of project progress and outcomes at key international forums.
State of implementation/results
- Assessments of 16 countries’ spatial planning frameworks were completed. A global comparative study assessing best practices for integrating climate change and biodiversity into legal frameworks across the globe was finalized.
- A project meeting was organized in Vietnam in March 2016 to review implementation, plan future activities and streamline complementary activities with a new IKI project.
- The project is organizing the CBD COP 13 side event “Legal solutions for integrating climate change and biodiversity across wider landscapes including protected Areas”.
