Organisme d’exécution  : Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature

Date d’approbation : 12-JUN-2007
Date de clôture : 14-JUL-2013

Finalité et objectifs :
The main objective of the project is to secure the ecological integrity of the Jordan Rift Valley, as a globally important ecological corridor and migratory flyway, through a combination of integrated land use planning, ecologically appropriate and nature-based socioeconomic development, and biodiversity protection and management.

Project Outputs & Outcomes
The proposed project would be designed as a comprehensive program that will mainstream biodiversity conservation into land use and development throughout the Jordan Rift Valley.
Two key outcome indicators include : a) seven integrated land use management plans with biodiversity conservation measures in place with participation of all stakeholders and agencies, and b) the total number of hectares in the four PAs (56,950ha) are under sustainable management, as recorded by the biodiversity-tracking tool.
The intermediate results include : biodiversity conservation measures introduced into land use planning in the JRV ; standard of living of local communities in the vicinity of the protected areas improved through biodiversity friendly alternative livelihoods ; biodiversity management capacity enhanced in the four (Yarmouk, Fifa, Mas’uda, & Qatar) protected areas (PA) ; mechanisms for sustainable financing of biodiversity conservation in place for the four PA ; and institutional strengthening and enhanced stakeholder capacity for integrated ecosystem management practices.
