The project, which is implemented by IUCN Regional Office for West Asia (ROWA) and funded by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), aiming at achieving a number of results that local communities will benefit from on the local and global levels.

Expected Outcomes:

1. Conduct field survey for the biodiversity resources comprehensively (Flora, Fauna, Birds) for the selected protect area.

2. Investigate the major pressures and threats facing the selected protected area management and conservation, how to overcome these pressures and threats to decrease the biodiversity loss and restore the protected area to its natural balance as possible.

3. Assess the national, institutional and individual capacity building needs for nature conservation, protected areas management, and identify gaps in the policy, planning and legislative framework for the protected areas and make recommendations on how to address these gaps.

A number of activities and plans are developed in order to achieve these results.
