Communication, Education and Public Awareness (CEPA): A toolkit for NBSAP coordinators (2006)
At the sixth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity the Programme of Work on article 13 Communication, Education and Public Awareness (CEPA) was adopted. One of the elements of the work program was to provide for capacity-building on CEPA for Parties to the Convention. During the eighth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP-8) in Curitiba, Brazil in 2006, Parties adopted a priority list of activities. One of these was the development of a toolkit to facilitate this capacitybuilding and to provide support for the organization of regional training workshops. The workshops have, as a goal the integration of the tools and methodologies of CEPA into the development, implementation and revision of National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs). To accomplish this integration, the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity asked IUCN to develop a CEPA toolkit for these NBSAP training workshops for use by focal points to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). This toolkit is meant to be used by CBD focal points and those to whom the implementation of a NBSAP is delegated at the national level.
