Project Summary

The specific objectives of the proposed project are to: (i) promote the strengthening of local environmental and agricultural institutions and communities, by providing them with land-use planning tools for the formulation and initial implementation of an integrated watershed management plan; (ii) promote the integrated management of existing public and private protected areas; and (iii) support the implementation of sustainable activities on a pilot and demonstrative basis that would serve to reduce pressure on key natural resources, and rehabilitate natural habitats, particularly riparian forests, native grasslands and savannahs.
