This report is an extension to the most recent ABCG Annual Technical (Program) Report to USAID, Bureau for Africa, Office of Sustainable Development, entitled: AFRICA BIODIVERSITY COLLABORATIVE GROUP FY2014 ANNUAL REPORT Fulfilling the Biodiversity Analysis and Technical Support (BATS) USAID/AFR/SD Award # RLA-A-00-07-00043.

ABCG was granted a six month no-cost extension to USAID’s Cooperative Agreement No. RLA-A-00-07-00043-00 for the Biodiversity Analysis and Technical Support (BATS) program. The amendment extended the period of performance through March 31st, 2015.

This extension report, covering the period October 1st, 2014 to March 31st, 2015,  includes material deliverables as described in the 2014 ABCG Work Plan to USAID (Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group, 2013), that were not concluded during the regular fiscal year spanning October 1st, 2013 to September 30th, 2014 because of a delay in the disbursement of activity funds, thus delaying work plan deliverables.

This extension report is to be referred to when using the 2014 Annual Report (Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group et al., 2014).
