Biodiversity Integration Case Studies

This collection of 16 cases from the 2019 USAID Biodiversity Integration Case Study Competition illustrates how biodiversity conservation is critically linked to the journey to self-reliance—by reducing extreme poverty, increasing food security, improving human health, managing climate impacts, building resilience to recurrent crises, and achieving many other development objectives. Together, the cases provide a snapshot of how USAID Missions and implementing partners conceptualize, design, and implement cross-sectoral integration.

Each case describes a USAID activity and shares lessons learned and common tools used to advance integrated programming. Cases provide examples of different approaches to integration, including integrated geographies and/or funding streams, and situations in which funding from one sector generates benefits across sectors.
