This document provides guidance for decision-makers on a range of biodiversity principles and issues which confront decision-makers every day when they evaluate impact assessments. It is based on the findings of a Situation Assessment conducted as part of the Capacity Building in Biodiversity and Impact Assessment (CBBIA) Project during 2005. The Situation Assessment made use of the input received from authorities and conservation agencies from the southern African region in response to questionnaire surveys and structure workshops. It also drew heavily from 24 case studies on impact assessment and decision-making from four SADC countries.
CBBIA was a project of IAIA and funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
