NBSAP - Develop national strategies, plans or programs for the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity or adapt for this purpose existing strategies, plans or programs which shall reflect the measures set out Characteristics:  Characteristics NAPA - Easy to understand, action-oriented and with clear priorities for immediate activities.

Application to livelihoods, health, food security, water, infrastructure, heritage, bio-D., land-use, forestry, other environment amenities List of priority activities with sets of profiles Preparation process description NAP Not focusing on a single report document NBSAP Strategy document summarizing Findings of stocktaking – bio-D resources, trends, problems and causes Statement of objectives and measures to achieve these Prioritization of activities Linkages and Support Mechanisms:  Linkages and Support Mechanisms NAPA Closely related to initial national communications Institutional coordination with other enabling activities including NCSA NAPA should contribute to formulation of national communication.
