New policy briefs to communicate outcomes of MRV projects
Four policy briefs (in French) were created to communicate the highly policy-relevant outcomes of the four projects of the first call for Measuring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of biodiversity and biodiversity policy.

- "Tendance inquiétante de la dégradation de la biodiversité : Appel aux décideurs pour inverser la situation" (Burundi). This project studied the trends in the surface of selected ecosystems and natural habitats, in the populations and extinction risks of selected species providing ecosystem services. The policy brief calls for actions to improve the situation.
- "Connaissances traditionnelles et ressources génétiques associées" (Benin). The project aimed at documenting the use and value chain of medicinal plants in urban areas of Benin.
- "Quels indicateurs pour le suivi efficace de la biodiversité au Bénin?" (Benin). The project selected, developed and operationalized indicators for the national follow-up of Benin's Biodiversity Strategy (NBSAP).
- "Vers la valorisation des connaissances traditionnelles des communautés locales et autochtones en RDCongo" (DRCongo). The project aimed to valorize non-timber forest products used for food and traditional medicine in order to document traditional knowledge and advice the authorities on relevant policies for the sustainable use of biodiversity.
