INTERACT- Bio Integrated Regional Action for Biodiversity

01 Dec 2016 to 31 Dec 2024


The partner countries have signed the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs) have already been drawn up. INTERACT-Bio supports them in establishing the management of biodiversity and ecosystems as a cross-sectional task and as the joint responsibility of national, regional and local authorities. Particularly at the local level, any existing biodiversity potential and its value is identified in selected urban regions, and the possibilities for nature-based solutions are presented by means of pilot projects, thus facilitating and intensifying the implementation of the NBSAP. The information gained flows into the development of sub-national BSAP, while cooperation with regional and local stakeholders is initiated through dialogue processes at the national level. Experiences are published globally and made available to the CBD contracting parties for their NBSAP revisions.
