The National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan of Timor-Leste (2011-2020)
The National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP) is Timor-Leste’s framework to conserve its biodiversity. The NBSAP is closely anchored to the National Strategic Development Plan of Timor-Leste (2011-2030). It is consistent with other policy frameworks such as the National Adaptation Programme of Action on Climate Change (December 2010), the National Action Programme to Combat Land Degradation (February 2009), the Fisheries Sector Plan and the Forestry Sector Plan. The NBSAP is also a guiding policy framework for district and sub-district authorities, civil society and the private sector in their approaches to biodiversity conservation and ecosystems management.
