Project Lead: Elke Foerster Duration: 01 Jan 2013 to 30 Nov 2018
This global project is jointly implemented by GIZ, GRID-Arendal, IUCN and UN Environment and is dedicated to the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity. The project identifies and disseminates successful on-the-ground solutions that concern a wide range of marine topics. In addition, it contributes to capacity development by the means of training courses and different exchange formats. The project also collates results of exchanges and advises on how to integrate approaches into national and regional strategies as well as into planning processes. In this way, the project supports partner countries to contribute to implementing one of the key areas of activity of the Convention on Biodiversity (CBD).
