The project, which is implemented by IUCN Regional Office for West Asia (ROWA) and funded by Diwan of Royal Court, is aiming at designing and implementing comprehensive training programs for protected areas rangers "enforcement officers" to gain required skills and improve their performance, and ultimately, contribute positively to biodiversity conservation.

The project is expected to achieve a number of results that local communities will benefit from on the local and global levels.

Expected Outcomes:

1. Rangers are fully understood related legislations and legal obligations.

2. Laws are properly enforced through skilled and qualified rangers.

3. Awareness campaigns are implemented professionally.

4. Trainees exposed to patrol plans preparation, implementation and monitoring.

5. Rangers are educated about the importance of working closely with community leaders to support their patrolling plans.

6. Rangers gain knowledge of processing legal cases.

7. Training manual and Ranger Hand Book ready.

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