Conservation & development : community conservation area (CCA) for conservation and livelihoods improvement
Conservation & development : community conservation area (CCA) for conservation and livelihoods improvement
The project will establish a community conservation area and build local community CCA management capacity and partnerships with government and private sector.
A CCA will be established and agreements between the local community and governments will be built so long term visions and strategic frameworks can be implemented for natural resource management and biodiversity monitoring.
Nature-based businesses will be scaled up to reduce poverty and ethical businesses and entrepreneurship capacities of business owners will increase.
Advocacy and awareness capacity of local communities will be increased to safeguard nature and voice out their rights of engagement in sustainable natural resources management and benefit sharing.
