National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs) are the principal instruments for implementing the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) at the national level. The Convention requires countries to prepare a national biodiversity strategy and to ensure that this strategy is mainstreamed into the planning and activities of all those sectors whose activities can have an impact on biodiversity. To date, a total of 180 (93%) Parties have developed NBSAPs .
It is worth to recognize that the German Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union, NABU interestingly used wilderness designation as an indicator for the NBSAP!!
