Hesselink, F., Goldstein, W., van Kempen, P.P., Garnett, T. and Dela, J. 2007. Communication, Education and Public Awareness (CEPA) A toolkit for National Focal Points and NBSAP Coordinators. Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity and IUCN: Montreal, Canada.
The Programme of Work on article 13 Communication, Education and Public Awareness (CEPA) was adopted at the sixth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the CBD. One of the elements of the work program was to provide for capacity-building on CEPA for Parties to the Convention. This toolkit is designed to provide that assistance.
The toolkit consists of four sections that contain guidance and tools for CEPA interventions by National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plan (NBSAP) Coordinators. Section 1 contains information on CEPA and how to get started; section 2 provides advice on how to network and raise awareness; section 3 discusses engaging stakeholders and mainstreaming biodiversity and section 4 concludes with how to plan communication strategically.
