The project envisaged the review and analysis of the biodiversity planning system, the economic valuation of ecosystem services, the analysis and development of activities to mainstream biodiversity issues into economic sectors.
The main tasks of the project were the revision of the biodiversity planning system, the development of new state goals and the updating of the Action plan, as well as enhancing the national system of implementation of the Action plan on biodiversity conservation.
The project also adopted a new approach to cooperation between UNDP Turkmenistan and the Government. The new approach aimed at enhancing the expertise and capacity building of government officials and joint project implementation. For the implementation of the project and the preparation of the BSAP, a cross-sectoral working group composed of mid-level officials representing eight key ministries was established. In addition, a technical group for economic appraisal and a cross-sectoral technical group of IT experts was established and trained.
