Mainstreaming biodiversity in development cooperation: lessons learned from donor agency experience
In 2022 PBL Netherlands Environment Assessment Agency contracted IIED to undertake a review of biodiversity mainstreaming in development cooperation agencies. IIED has a long track record of work on biodiversity mainstreaming and environment mainstreaming more broadly. This study builds on that work, as well as drawing on insights from work by others.
The report is based on a review of experiences of donor agencies in Canada, the European Commission, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, and the UK. It was compiled through a literature review as well as key informant interviews with agency staff in a subset of these.
