INTERACT-Bio is being implemented in Brazil, India and Tanzania.
Brazil, India and Tanzania each have globally unique biodiversity, but complex development challenges are widely manifested in their fast-growing cities and surrounding regions. These three countries are all signatories to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and are considered frontrunners in implementing the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. The project presents these three countries with a unique opportunity to enable deeper engagement of, and contribution by, their subnational governments in implementing their current, and shaping their future National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plans (NBSAPs).
