ABOUT:  The "Integrated Biodiversity Management in the South Caucasus" (IBiS) Programme is a regional technical cooperation programme implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für International Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Government. The biodiversity of the South Caucasus is of global importance, but the huge variety of species and the proper functioning of the ecosystems are under threat. In each of the three countries of the South Caucasus – Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan – there are National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plans (NBSAPs) and initial sectoral strategies for managing biodiversity and ecosystem services. As yet these are unable to withstand the challenges posed by the overlapping interests of different sectors (forestry, pasture farming, agriculture, nature conservation and tourism). There is a lack of coordination between the various state and non-state actors and population groups. In addition, there is not enough reliable data available to support planning and decision-making processes. The objective of the regional IBiS programme is to promote better coordination of biodiversity and ecosystem services management across sectors (sector networking) on the basis of solid data. Here, the role of organizational development and process management is becoming increasingly important in order to support the work of partner institutions by the GIZ team. The programme is working in four areas of activity: supporting pilot measures and coordination processes at local level; strengthening capacity and building public awareness at national level; and promoting the sharing of expertise at supranational level. The programme is due to last four years (from December 2015 to November 2019). For the information about the Programme, please visit:
