Outcome 1.1 - Improved management effectiveness (strengthened PA management tools, processes, and capacities) demonstrated at two targeted PAs (Wadi El-Rayan and Lake Qarun).
Component 2: Establish effective community participation in PA management and conservation/management of natural resources.
Outcome 2.1 - Participatory approaches to PA management have strengthened PA management and reduced unsustainable resource uses in areas within and adjacent to two targeted PAs (Wadi El-Rayan and Lake Qarun).
