AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:
- The overall objective of this project, spanning over 6 months, was to develop a biodiversity conservation strategy through sustainable use of natural resources in Yammouneh. A team of 5 Green Liners conducted a taxonomic surveys (including fauna and flora), socio-economic surveys and produced, using GIS, a set of base maps of the region depicting all natural features, including core biological conservation area and nature conservation areas.
This assessment and conservation strategy will be used to develop a Medium Sized Project for Biodiversity Conservation through Sustainable Use of Natural Resources at Yammouneh.
