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

As of: August 2019

Objective and activities

The project aims to build on the IKI project “Avoidance of deforestation and forest degradation”. New elements will be added to the design, e.g. control of illegal wildlife trafficking, incentives for biodiversity conservation and encouragement of an institutionally anchored trend reversal against forest degradation and biodiversity loss through illegal logging, poaching, agriculture use and large scale infrastructure projects. Successfully tested models (biodiversity conservation, community forest management, financing mechanisms for protected areas through PFES) of the current 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 focus is implementing measures designed to counteract transboundary leakage effects, and contributing to the conservation of biological diversity of the Central Annamite mountain range.
