Making the Link: The Connection and Sustainable Management of Kon Ka Kinh and Kon Cha Rang Nature Reserves

Project Summary

The PDF-A activities will determine the project approach based on an assessment of sustainable timber values in the intervening area and the preference of the Gia Lai Provincial People's Committee. Regardless of the option chosen, the project will include sustainable management of forest resources by improving the sequestration of carbon and enhancing soil and water conservation as a means of green-house gas reduction and land degradation improvements.The purpose of this project is to establish a foundation of support and management to maintain the biological integrity and connectivity of Kon Ka Kinh (KKK) and Kon Cha Rang (KCR) Nature Reserves (NRs).The goal of the project is the long-term conservation of the unique biological attributes of the Central Annamites Priority Landscape. While the establishment of KKK and KCR NRs was an important contribution to this goal, individually they are too small to maintain viable populations of all species, particularly wide-ranging species that occur at naturally low densities, such as Tiger Panthera tigris. Therefore, in order for the goal to be realized, it is essential that KKK and KCR NRs and the intervening SFEs be managed in a way that is consistent with the maintenance of their integrity as a single biological unit. The purpose of the project is, therefore, to establish a foundation of support and management to maintain the biological integrity and connectivity of KKK and KCR NRs
