甘肃省因其地形、气候和生物多样性而著名， 省内有大片森林覆盖的西秦岭 - 岷山山系景观。
Brief project description:
Gansu Province is famous for its topography, climate and biodiversity. There is a large forest covered landscape ofthe West Qinling Minshan Mountain System in Gansu Province.
The forest in this area is an important water conservation area.
It is also part of the "biodiversity hotspots" in South Central China.
Gansu Province has more than 60 natural reserves (NRS), which are of great significance to the threatened species such as giant panda and golden monkey.
However, due to infrastructure construction and unsustainable land management, the connectivity of forest covered landscape and the survival of key species are threatened, which is exacerbated by climate change.
This long-term solution is constrained by the following barriers to enhance the protection of indigenous and global threatened species in Gansu Province by reducing the threat and mainstreaming the protected area system in government and relevant sector planning:
The legal and institutional framework for the effective protection of protected areas and globally threatened species and their habitats is not sound, and enforcement is weak;
The ability of institutions and individuals to manage the protected area (PA) and reduce the network threat is weak;
There is no knowledge management and monitoring and evaluation system for effective management of protected areas and protection activities.
The project will eliminate these obstacles through the key achievements of three major components:
1) Improve the legal and institutional framework of protected areas, key biodiversity areas (kbas) and global threatened species, and mainstream biodiversity conservation in provincial planning;
2) Strengthen the protection area and ecological corridor network of the West Qinling Minshan Mountain system and reduce the threat;
3) We will improve data and knowledge management, monitoring and evaluation to support biodiversity conservation.
