This blueprint has documented several important aspects of the process, status, goals and policy for sustainable management of Nigerian bioresources. As can be seen from the different chapters of this document, the path to sustainable development and management of Nigerian bioresources involves a multidisciplinary and participatory approach. Thus, for achievement of effective, sustainable development and management, government, communities, industries, private firms, and non-governmental organizations must work together to plan, monitor and manage Nigerian bioresources. An action plan embodying policy implementation of identified programmes must be put in place, to ensure that all hands are on deck to achieve sustainable development. This therefore means that government, the community and household, for example, must work together. The result of the work carried out from the Okwangwo Division of Cross River National Park has proved that a participatory approach involving all stakeholders can yield substantial revenue from non-timber products far in excess of revenue from timber. It is imperative; therefore, that greater attention should be given to the bioresources endowment of the nation in order to maximize their contribution to the national economy.
