PROGRAM (Endelig ansøgning)
Indsatsen foregår i følgende lande:
- Bird Conservation Nepal (BCN)
- Nature Kenya (NK)

The Program is going to be implemented in three countries that are all subjected to poverty and unsustainable management of forests and natural resources. It focuses on high biodiversity forested areas identified by BirdLife. The overall goal of the Program is to reduce the destruction of forested IBAs and contribute to the realisation of best participatory forest management practices for the benefit of all. The Program consists of three components each with their own Program goal: 1. Program partners have increasing capacity to strategically work with the integration of poverty reduction and nature protection; 2. Participatory forest management contributes to improved livelihoods of poor communities, and reduce pressure on ecosystems and biodiversity; and 3. Local civil society groups are empowered to engage in rights based advocacy and political processes. The following cross-cutting issues are integrated in the Program: gender and equality, indigenous people, biodiversity, environment and climate.
