Résumé du projet
The project is a model of integrating human development activities into environment protection programmes. A number of Dahan Village Community Organizations of Neekshahr Urban District (Sistan Baluchestan Province) will be trained to propagate the endemic endangered species of plants to combat desertification and generate household income. The project will also involve the empowerment of the local community in the planning, implementing, monitoring and reporting of such projects through training and workshops. Part of the project budget ($US 5,800) will be used to establish a revolving credit fund to support other GEF/SGP eligible projects that can be linked with poverty alleviation programmes of the region. The project will benefit from the expertise and assistance of the Forests and Rangeland Organization in the region. Booklets and films will be prepared to document the lessons learned. A workshop will be held in Tehran for dissemination of best practices
