A Biological Vision for the Greater Annamites Ecoregion

In 2000 and 2001, WWF co-ordinated the development of a Biological Vision for the Greater Annamites Ecoregion.

Over 80 scientists, conservationists and policy-makers from Cambodia, Lao P.D.R., Vietnam and 15 other countries contributed to the process of determining priority areas for conservation action in the Greater Annamites ecoregion.

Priority areas in the Northern, Central and Southern Annamites were ranked in terms of critical, acute and high priority. Other landscapes were identified as having the potential to be globally significant - however, they could not be classified due to a lack of data and information. These are grouped under Survey Areas.

Conservation within all of these areas must be achieved to ensure that the regional (i.e. Indochina) contribution to global biodiversity conservation is successful.

Although the areas have been ranked for priority action, the entire network represents the minimum that is required to ensure successful conservation. Anything less would mean a significant loss to global and regional biodiversity.
