The PIR was carried out based on key documents such as the NBSAP, the National strategy and action plan for biodiversity information exchange in Niger, the 6th CBD national report, the PDES 2022-2026, the finance laws 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, and Settlement Acts from 2000 to 2021, the Statistical yearbook 2016-2020, etc.
Conducted using a participatory and inclusive approach, the API process achieved four main results:
- The first result relates to the analysis of visions and strategies for biodiversity.
- The second result clarifies the context of these sustainable development strategies/policies by describing the evolutionary trends of biodiversity in Niger.
- The third result focuses on the landscape of biodiversity financing in Niger, revealing the national and sub-national budgetary process, biodiversity revenues, existing financing instruments in Niger (over 28 instruments identified and analyzed), and subsidies with an impact on biodiversity.
- The fourth result, derived from the analysis of biodiversity financing institutions in Niger, facilitates our understanding of the institutional dynamics that characterize biodiversity in Niger.
Finally, several general and specific recommendations have been formulated. These underline the need for capacity-building programs for key priority institutions in budgeting, planning, management of biodiversity financing mechanisms, and internal resource mobilization for biodiversity, as well as changes in sectoral agropastoral policies, improved budgeting and planning processes within the public sector, and good environmental/ecological governance.
