UNDP/GEF Main Streams of Life (MSL)Wetland PA System Strengthening for Biodiversity Conservation Programme NationalLevel Project Beijing, June 7th, 2012
THE BIG PICTURE:CHINA BIODIVERSITY PARTNERSHIP FRAMEWORK (CPBF) • UNDP/GEF CBPF: Framework for biodiversity conservation and sustainable use. • Strategic partnership-based approach for cooperation around CBPF’s partners projects. • Shift the national approach to biodiversity and more fully integrate it into development at all levels.
“NOT THE FIRST UNDP-GEF WETLANDS PROJECT” UNDP-GEF- Government of China Project “Wetland Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use in China” (2009) • Objective: To establish wetland biodiversity conservation as a routine consideration in national, provincial and local government decision making and action (ca. US$15 Million) • Weaknesses: • Geographically very dispersed; • Ecosystem point of view very diverse (tidal mudflats, high elevation peat bogs, open wetlands); • Some of these systems (e.g. Ruoergai peat bogs) are extremely complex from an anthropological, social and economic point of view • Credibility loss as a result of its suspension in 2002 • Absenceof a well developed M&E system • Despite these Shortcomings: • Impressive information/data bases were set up; • Monitoring systems improved or put in place • Information made available at all levels; • Mechanism of policy dialogue and cooperation enhanced; • Staff at all levels were given specialised training or for study tours, national and international.
UNDP/GEF MAIN STREAMS OF LIFE (MSL) WETLAND PA SYSTEM STRENGTHENING FOR BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION PROGRAMME - Sub-set of the CBPF Results Framework Goal: Catalyze the sustainability of the National Protected Area System for Conservation of Globally Significant Wetland Biodiversity “Long-term solution” to safeguard wetland biodiversity: to build a stronger PA system that has a far more robust governance framework to deliver improved conservation across the country. Barriers 1: Weak systemic and institutional capacity for effective PA management at the national, provincial and local levels. 2: Disconnect between PA planning and management and national development and sectoral planning plus low financial security 3: Insufficient availability and accessibility of information and data and insufficient awareness
