Project Summary:
We will establish a local protected area to promote socio-ecological resilience to support the recovery of the globally-endangered Saker falcon, Steppe eagle, Marmot and Musk deer and disincentivise over-exploitation and degradation of their threatened forest-steppe habitat, by securing the economic wellbeing and food security for the forest-steppe dependent community in Arkhangai. Scalable, equitable, community-driven initiatives will be delivered through: biological monitoring; sustainable forest management; pasture management; sustainable livelihoods and strengthened governance, providing a model for LPA expansion across the forest-steppe. 1660km2 of Arkhangai’s forest-steppe secured and sustainably managed as a LPA, supporting globally-endangered species’ recovery, equitably safeguarding communities’ culture and livelihoods, and providing a framework for replicating the LPA model.
