Dear all, it’s great to have a community to exchange and learn together about biodiversity. We should use this forum more, since we are all striving to work together towards strong, effective and timely NBSAPS!

I’m a consultant working with an initiative to advocate for stronger integration of AGROECOLOGY into NBSAPs, using a food systems approach. It’s particularly relevant to T10, but also to a dozen other KMGBF targets. Agroecology is a multifunctional, systems approach that represents a tremendous opportunity to achieve KMGBF (and other Rio Convention) targets. See https://www.agroecology-pool.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/Bio3Rio_Brief.pdf

We’re looking for CASE STUDIES and examples of national (& sub-national) POLICIES that use a systems approach to strengthen agroecological elements in all the KMGBF targets. Particularly if they use a strong equity / rights lens.

This initiative is supported by the Global Alliance for the Future of Food, Biovision Foundation, WWF and Bioversity-CIAT Alliance, with the involvement of many CSO and research collaborators.

We’d really appreciate if you would shared examples you’ve identified!
Warm thanks, and see you at SBSTTA26!

Hi community! It is a great pleasure to join the NBSAP Forum representing Fundación Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (FARN), a new technical partner of this global partnership.
I am a lawyer specialising in environmental law and policy. I work at FARN as Biodiversity Director and Deputy Director. The organisation is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
FARN follows the processes of the three Rio Conventions and the national processes deriving from them. FARN is accredited before the National Biodiversity Commission and currently represents the CSO sector therein. The organisation has contributed to the Commission and the NBSAP process for many years. Doing so for the upcoming updated NBSAP to 2030 won´t be an exception.
You can find more information about FARN´s work at: http://www.farn.org.ar and below I share the links to some relevant contributions to the NBSAP process in my country.
Kind regards

Dear community,
Colombia is currently in the process of reviewing and updating its NBSAP. In November 2023, the Colombian Ministry of Environment and the Humboldt Institute, with other entities from different sectors, developed a series of Workshops for the alignment of Indicators that should accompany the 23 Goals of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, from a national scale. This year we will continue to refine this process and we hope to have the exercise ready to present at COP 16 of biodiversity to be held in our country. We look forward to share our experience with other countries that are in the same process.


Thanks Maria for this information. Lots of countries have questions on the use of indicators, and while AHTEG is doing a fantastic job, any additional support and good practice from the countries’ experience is welcome. Please do not hesitate in sharing more information or reaching out so we can organize a peer-to-peer discussion.

Estimada comunidad. Les cuento Colombia se encuentra actualmente en proceso de revisión y actualización de su NBSAP. En noviembre del 2023 el Ministerio de Ambiente de Colombia y el Instituto Humboldt, junto con otras entidades de diferentes sectores, desarrollaron una serie de Talleres de Socialización para el alineamiento de Indicadores que deben acompañar las 23 Metas del Marco Mundial para la Biodiversidad Kunming – Montreal, desde una escala nacional. Este año seguimos refinando dicho proceso y esperamos tener listo el ejercicio para presentar en la COP 16 de biodiversidad que se realizará en nuestro país. Estaremos atentos para compartir nuestra experiencia con otros países que estén en el mismo proceso.
