BIOFIN Webinar: Financial Needs Assessment
The Financial Needs Assessment (FNA) is the third step of the BIOFIN process. The FNA aims to make a comprehensive estimate of the financial resources needed to achieve national and sub-national biodiversity targets. The national biodiversity targets are typically articulated in NBSAPs and other key national strategies such as national development plans, sectoral development plans and climate change plans. The BIOFIN detailed FNA methodology encourages improved performance through more effective budgeting and fiscal management.
The webinar will comprise three different parts:
1. Introduction to the CBD-BIOFIN Regional Nodes where the CBD Secretariat will explain the links between FNA and the financial reporting framework (10min).
2. Presentation on the BIOFIN FNA methodology (40 min).
3. Q&A and discussion session (30 min).
