Project Description
The unique mountain forest and subalpine landscapes with poorly known and threatened biodiversity are located in Hors, Akhndjadzor and Taratumb communities of Vayots Dzor region of Armenia. The project area of 1700 hectares reflects the diversity of Vayots Dzor natural resources: mountains, forests, lake, wetlands and grassland with high value of biodiversity. Moreover, the target zone is adjoining eastern part of Khosrov Forest State Reserve and may serve as a buffer area and an ecological corridor for many endangered wild animals, as Leopards (Panthera pardus), Bezoar Goats (Capra aegagrus), Mouflons (Ovis orientailis) etc. Unfortunately, such rich biodiversity is currently threatened: the rapid developing farming and uncontrolled use of natural resources (poaching, logging and overgrazing, etc.) are major threats to ecosystems and wildlife here. The overall objective of the project is to promote nature conservation by reducing conflict between wildlife and local communities in Vayots Dzor area through incorporation of sustainable biodiversity-friendly income-generating practices into local community livelihoods. The project specific activities include making an inventory and implementing monitoring of threatened ecosystems, establishing a community-based tourist infrastructure as well as raising awareness on biodiversity conservation and enhancing local capacity to implement bioresources-dependant sustainable livelihood practices. It is believed that introduction of eco-tourism in the project communities as a viable biodiversity-friendly livelihood practice in and around the NGO-managed protected area will generate additional sources of income and increase understating and awareness of the importance and value of rich biodiversity locally.
