Enabling Activities (climate change and biodiversity)

Safeguard biodiversity

Strengthening the policy and regulatory framework for mainstreaming biodiversity

This project will assist in establishment of the CHM, establish information flow mechanism to and from the stakeholders, and determine special needs for stakeholders who are not able to use electronic information such as indigenous peoples. Further to the CHM the project will bring together national and some international taxonomy experts to guide the process and also work with national experts to come up with strategies for IK and sustainable use of biodiversity.
