Purpose: Rare but little-known biodiversity is under severe threat from poaching, hunting and subsistence activities in conflict-affected South Sudan. This project will bring 430km2 of critically threatened forest, including habitat for endangered species - particularly elephant and chimpanzee - under more effective management. A holistic landscape approach to biodiversity protection and resilient livelihoods piloting, with significant potential to scale up and promote stability and development, will mitigate threats whilst directly benefitting youth, women and their communities. Integrated conservation and development provide benefits to over 900 direct and 3,000 indirect beneficiaries in South Sudan and protects 430km2 of nationally important tropical forest habitat
