Forthcoming Q4, 2017 - Biodiversity and Development: Mainstreaming and managing for results
This report will focus on three key areas: mainstreaming biodiversity and development objectives at the national and sectoral levels (e.g. in agriculture, fisheries, and forestry), and how to monitor and evaluate mainstreaming performance.
This paper provides an in-depth review of experiences and insights from mainstreaming biodiversity and development in South Africa. More specifically, it describes how biodiversity considerations have been mainstreamed in five key sectors/areas, namely: land use planning, mining, water, infrastructure, and the agricultural sector.
