Description

Project Description:

The project “Promotion of Eco-corridors Programme in the Southern Caucasus” is conducted by The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Caucasus Programme Office in cooperation with KfW Development Bank. The consortium of GOPA Consultants, DSF and Hessen-forst are providing the consulting services for the implementation.
 
The purpose of the programme is to introduce funding for ecologically sustainable land use in selected eco-corridors in the Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia) and thus contribute to interlinking protected areas and enhancing their ecological stability by setting up an “Ecoregional Corridor Fund” (ECF) as an instrument for promoting sustainable land use practices in ecological corridors through contractual nature conservation.
