DarwinNet and the Tumbesian Important Bird Areas
Dr David Thomas
Host Country Institutions:
Fundacion Probosque, Nature & Culture International Peru
To promote local stakeholder and manager (‘practitioner’) networks for conservation of Tumbesian Dry Forest
1. Binational network of local stakeholders at priority dry forest sites (including IBAs) formed and linked to DarwinNet.
2. Capacity of community groups strengthened to participate in species and site conservation activities at priority sites (IBAs)
3. Linkages between NGOs/development agencies and local stakeholders (communities and managers at sites) strengthened, more effectively targeting resources and effort and improving prospects for sites.
4. Tools and capacity for reserve managers to effectively share lessons and experience are enhanced.
5. Protected area planning in the region is based on reliable information and prioritisation provided through DarwinNet
