This thematic stream aims to explore strategies for integrating biodiversity considerations into mainstream policies, programs, and practices in LMICs. This stream focuses on scaling up mainstreaming efforts to achieve transformative change and ensure the long-term conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
Mainstreaming biodiversity involves integrating biodiversity values, objectives, and actions across sectors such as agriculture, infrastructure, energy, and urban planning. This stream examines successful approaches, tools, and mechanisms that facilitate the incorporation of biodiversity considerations into mainstream decision-making processes, policies, and practices. By highlighting experiences from LMICs, participants will gain insights into the challenges and opportunities of scaling up mainstreaming efforts in diverse socio-economic and environmental contexts.
