Protecting Mongolia’s Gobi Desert for wild camels and herder communities

Titre : Protecting Mongolia’s Gobi Desert for wild camels and herder communities

Pays : Mongolie

Date : Start Date : 01-07-21 // End Date:30-06-24

Résumé
The Great Gobi ‘A’ Strictly Protected Area encompasses 44,630km2 of globally significant desert and is home to the last population of Critically Endangered wild camel. Herders here face socio-ecological issues, including overgrazing ; rangeland degradation and waterhole loss, exacerbated by climate change. Government and communities lack mechanisms and resources to collaboratively tackle these threats. This project seeks to institutionalise robust evidence-based environmental management, implement scalable waterhole habitat management, strengthen collaborative governance, enable community-led awareness-raising, improve sustainable rangeland management and herder livelihoods.
