    A comprehensive (global review) of NBSAPs’ implementation is now timely given that it has been 15 years since the CBD’s obligations came into force. However, until such a global review is undertaken, regional reviews and national experiences provide some lessons which can guide further action. This publication advocates the development of sub-national biodiversity action plans (BSAPs) as a planning solution to the weaknesses of a large national planning and implementation process.
