Leveraging Sectoral Investments For Greening The Agriculture Production System – A Case Of Conservation Mainstreaming

The ‘solution’ addressed the issue of unsustainable extraction of park’s bio-resources by the local communities resulting in adverse park-people relations. Rather than preventing users to rely on bio-resources for their incomes, the ‘solution’ created alternative livelihood strategies and options that centered on the sustainable use practices and in doing so created a meaningful stake of local communities in managing the Park.

Safeguarding Mumbai’s Ecological Security

Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) and other protected areas around it are vital lifelines and are crucial to safeguard Mumbai’s water security. But this is hardly known to the population of Mumbai. With the management of SGNP, we have launched an extensive, multi-faceted outreach campaign to increase public awareness and win public support for SGNP.

Recognizing Development Challenges: Creating A Protected Area Network For Migratory Water Birds Along The East Asian - Australasian Flyway

The East Asian – Australasian Flyway Partnership brings together 33 national government agencies, inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations to conserve migratory waterbirds and their habitats for biodiversity and people throughout the 22 countries of the Flyway. A major objective of EAAFP is to identify a critical network of sites (the Flyway Site Network) that, if conserved and effectively managed, can support the continued migration of all waterbird species and groups into the future.

Protected Areas Tourism For Nepal's Development

Protected Areas (Pas) of Nepal provide habitat for a range of species including tiger, rhino, snow leopard, red panda, musk deer, and many others. A gradual shift in the management strategy from strict protection and species focus into ecosystem and landscape approach has mainstreamed economic development. As of 2014, there are 10 national parks, three wildlife reserves, one hunting reserve, six conservation areas, and 12 twelve buffer zones which are a part of the PA system in Nepal.

Protected Area Financing In India

Estimating the funding required for biodiversity conservation in general, and protected area management in particular, is a formidable challenge on account of multitude of interrelated issues and the wide range of stakeholders involved. The issue of ‘scale’ has an overriding significance. It is relatively simpler to estimate funding requirements for a single protected area, and much more complicated for estimating funding requirements for the entire protected area network.

Equator Initiative Case Study – Chunoti Co-Management Committee

Chunoti Co-Management Committee (CMC) protects the once-degraded Chunoti Wildlife Sanctuary through the coordination of volunteer patrols and reinvestment of ecotourism revenues into conservation activities. Illegal logging and unsustainable resource extraction were threatening the Chunoti forest, until the community mobilized and advocated for a protected area co-management arrangement with the government. Women-led community patrol groups now monitor the forest to prevent illegal logging and poaching.

Equator Initiative Case Study – Tribal Communities of the Jeypore Tract of Orissa (Odisha)

The M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF) was concerned about the rapid depletion of rice diversity in the Jeypore tract of the Indian state of Orissa, once the home of the largest number of rice varieties in India. In 1998, the foundation undertook to improve the condition of poor farmers while revitalizing vanishing rice varieties, combining modern and traditional approaches for the conservation, enhancement, and sustainable use of local rice biodiversity.
