Building on success - turning capacity building advances into conservation gains


Ref: EIDPO029
Type: Post-Project
Project Leader: Muhtari Aminu-Kano
Lead Institution: Birdlife International
Host Country Institutions: Nature Kenya, Guyra Paraguay, Malaysian Nature Society, Palau Conservation Society
Start Date: 2009-04-01
End Date: 2011-03-31
Funding: £75,189.00
Website:
Status: Completed
Regions: East Asia, Pacific, South America, Sub-Saharan Africa
Countries: Kenya, Malaysia, Palau, Paraguay
Purpose: The purpose of the post-project is to support national NGOs in developing countries to make effective contributions in strengthening national Protected Areas networks through enhanced implementation of the CBD. The original project focused on strengthening the capacity of host country partners to increase their skills and resources needed for effective engagement with the CBD policy process. The project showed that the CBD can be an effective entry point for NGOs to engage in national biodiversity policy and help bring about tangible conservation gains. The project also supported the sharing of experiences with NGOs within the BirdLife International network. This project will build on these successes and focus on maximising the opportunities for conservation gains by taking advantage of a specific set of CBD commitments, especially those relating to the Programme of Work on Protected Areas, which require Contracting Parties to designate, manage and monitor a representative network of Protected Areas (terrestrial and marine). The Important Bird Areas (IBA) network, as identified, documented and monitored by BirdLife national Partners, will form the basis for this advocacy. Furthermore the guides and manuals developed in the original project will be tailored for use by the wider NGO community outside the BirdLife network.
