National Biodiversity Planning to Support the implementation of the CBD 2011-2020 Strategic Plan in Turkmenistan

What is the project about

This project aims to integrate Turkmenistan’s obligations under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) into its national development and sectoral planning frameworks.  This integration will be done through renewed and participative biodiversity planning process.  More specifically, the project will ensure a participatory stocktaking exercise on biodiversity planning to develop national biodiversity targets, to integrate new aspects of the CBD into the national Strategic Action Plan and establish new national framework for resource mobilization, reporting and other aspects of CBD national implementation.

The project will be implemented by relevant ministries under the general coordination by the Ministry of Nature Protection of Turkmenistan.

What have we accomplished so far

  • to hold an Inception Workshop to initiate the participatory planning process
  • to review the planning process, achieved results and shortfalls of the BSAP planning process
  • to develop national targets in respond to CBD Aichi targets for the strategy until 2020 through involving relevant government agencies and other organizations into newly developed participatory planning mechanism
  • to initiate the process of the country-wide economic assessment of ecosystem services by building the capacity of the local institutions to perform the analysis and assessment of economically important major ecosystem services around the country
