A Wildlife Recovery Landscape by the Carbon Sinks and Biodiversity Partnership
CarBi story book
WWF-Greater Mekong and its partners’ CarBi programme is an unprecedented trans-boundary conservation economy assignment, which aims to protect and restore more than 240,000 hectares of unique forest in one of the world's biodiversity hot spots, focused on the Central Annamite Mountains joining Laos and Vietnam. It brings together development partners, national, provincial and district governments, as well as local communities to conserve and restore the forests and their unique species, and to protect and enhance the livelihoods of the people whose existence depends on the ecosystem services provided by these forests. CarBi is focusing its value o ering on the contiguous Protected Area (PA) network in its planning domain, complemented by Forest Restoration in priority bu er zones, Payment for Forest Environmental Services (PFES), Timber Trade Governance, and a multitude of community engagement interventions, constituting an integrated high impact strategy.
