Integrated Conservation of Biodiversity and Forests - ICBF
The objective of ICBF is the effective management of two conservation landscapes for sustaining and enhancing biodiversity in forest ecosystems, while supporting livelihoods of forest-dependent communities. Therefore, planning and management capacities of the protected areas within the landscapes will be strengthened, law enforcement improved and sustainable land and forest management promoted. The northern conservation landscape includes two National Protected Areas (NPA’s) and two habitat corridors stretching across the provinces of Luang Namtha and Bokeo. In central Lao PDR the “Hin Nam No” National Park, particularly its sustainable use zone, as well as the ”Khoun Xe Nong Ma” Provincial Protected Area and connecting habitat corridors are supported.
