Seychelles' Policy and Institutional Review

Policy and Institutional Review (PIR)

The Seychelles Policy and Institutional Review report represents the first assessment document for the country under the BIOFIN initiative. An extensive desk review of the legal and policy framework, pertaining to biodiversity with a focus on the financial provisions. 

The setting up of the BIOFIN Steering Committee which was co-chaired by the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change and at the time the Ministry of Finance, Trade and Blue economy, allowed for a thorough consultative process with stakeholders (for the PIR), and attendance by civil society representatives and key government officials involved in biodiversity conservation.
