The 2020 Edition of the Ecoregional Conservation Plan (ECP) for the Caucasus is published in two parts. The first and main part, presents an overview of the Ecoregion’s biodiversity and the threats which it faces, describes the main actors in the field of biodiversity conservation in the Caucasus, explains the role of the ECP as a regional instrument for implementing international agreements related to biodiversity, discusses the main conceptual approaches for developing this edition of ECP, and presents the plan itself with its targets and actions. The second part of the ECP presents supplementary reports that include an explanation of the rationale for the Ecoregion’s boundaries, a detailed description of the Conservation Landscapes and Key Biodiversity Areas which form the basis of the Ecological Network envisaged by the ECP, and information about the status of some of the Ecoregion’s threatened species.
The Ecoregional Conservation Plan for the Caucasus has been revised in the frame of the Transboundary Joint Secretariat - Phase III Project, funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through KfW Development Bank and implemented by WWF Caucasus Programme Office with the involvement of the AHT GROUP AG - REC Caucasus Consortium.
