The Office of Forestry and Biodiversity (FAB) engaged Measuring Impact II to assess efforts to implement the USAID Biodiversity Policy's goal to "integrate biodiversity as an essential component of human development." The assessment investigated three modalities by which FAB, other Agency units, and implementing partners work on integration: building constituencies, leveraging entry points, and developing evidence. Overall, FAB integration efforts have produced many successes, including new constituencies and integration champions, guidance tools to improve integrated programming, and evidence for biodiversity’s importance to key development sectors. This Executive Summary provides highlights from the assessment and recommendations for future efforts.
