CBD Capacity Building Modules

A set of capacity building modules on national biodiversity strategies and action plans, and other aspects of implementation of the Convention, is available below. This set of capacity building modules aims to provide CBD focal points, biodiversity managers and other national stakeholders with an introduction to the Convention and the role of national focal points, as well as practical guides to the process of preparing National Reports and a National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP) and to making best use of the NBSAP once it has been prepared.


The capacity building package has been designed to be used for several types of capacity building purposes; however its main audience is expected to be National Focal Points of the Convention and other national staff responsible for implementation of the Convention. The Convention itself is a framework for identifying national action to be taken in accordance with national circumstances and capabilities to meet the objectives of the Convention.


The modules have been developed through a collaborative effort of the United Nations Environment Programme, the Secretariat of the Convention and the United Nations University.


It is envisaged that the modules will be periodically updated and developed in the light of experience. Please regard these as preliminary versions. Further topics will be addressed in due course. The Secretariat and its partners would welcome feedback on the use of modules and suggestions for their improvement. Please send comments to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
