How Eastern African Countries Are Using Economic Incentives To Make Biodiversity Attractive
Between 15-26 May more than a thousand government delegates and non-government observers will gather in Nairobi for the Fifth Meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP5) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (the CBD). One important agenda item that will be under discussion is the use of incentive measures to support the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. This is not the first time that incentives, and especially economic incentives, have been identified as a priority tool for biodiversity conservation. Meetings relating to the implementation of the CBD, at global, regional and national levels, have called repeatedly for the identification, development and use of economic incentives for biodiversity, and for the documentation and sharing of experiences relating to their use.
