The NBSAP Forum is a global partnership aiming to support the revision and implementation of National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plans (NBSAPs). The Secretariat of Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and UN Environment Programme (UNEP) host it in partnership. The purpose of our web portal is to support countries in finding the information they need to develop and implement effective NBSAPs. This online community of practice also connects a wide range of stakeholders who need access to timely information regarding NBSAP best practices, guidance and resources, or who wish to share their information, knowledge, support and resources. Over 5,000 members, speaking 122 languages, access the website from 190 countries on a daily basis.”
