Another aim of developing this tool-kit is to support the implementation of the National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP) through “mainstreaming” biodiversity into other sectors. Mainstreaming biodiversity aims at particularly avoiding the unintended loss of/or negative impacts on the environment .The most strategic pathway is to work for a “win-win” arrangement for biodiversity conservation that meets the obligations or mandate of the biodiversity and rangeland sectors involved. This tool-kit will be mainly designed for policy makers and is intended to support biodiversity. The toolkit also aims to develop mainstreaming efforts by synthesizing experience to date that can help make a strong business case for integrating biodiversity in policy, planning and budgetary processes.
The information in this toolkit is largely based on a review of existing literature and case studies from experts on biodiversity –development mainstreaming, and the fifth national report on the Implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity in Jordan.
