Biodiversity and Ecosystems Services in Agrarian Landscapes

As of: October 2018

Objective and activities

The aim of the project is to strengthen the capacities in maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services in agrarian landscapes. Land-use approaches promoting biodiversity in agriculture will be evaluated in the three countries (India, Kenia, Tajikistan) and pilot-wise implemented. These experiences are the basis for further development of the institutional framework at the regional and the national level. Challenges and results in maintaining or improving biodiversity and ecosystem services in agricultural landscapes will be exchanged in a regional dialogue; the findings and recommendations will be disseminated at the international level.
