Biodiversity Conserservation in the Central Annamites through Ecosystem Protection and Land Management

As of: April 2020

Objective and activities

The project aims to pick up on the success and deepen the impact of the former IKI project “Avoidance of deforestation and forest degradation”. Project aims are control of illegal wildlife trafficking, incentives for biodiversity conservation and encouragement of an institutionally anchored trend reversal against forest degradation and net biodiversity loss through illegal logging, poaching, agriculture use and large scale infrastructure projects. Successfully tested models of the former IKI project regarding protection of biodiversity priority areas as well as renaturation of degraded land will be multiplied and combined with new approaches for averting/mitigation and compensation of global biodiversity loss. The models include biodiversity conservation agreements with villages, community forest management and sustainable financing mechanisms for protected areas through PFES. An important focus of the project is implementing measures designed to counteract transboundary leakage effects.
