General

Project will support sustainable management of cloud forests within the Pacayita Volcano Biological Reserve and reduce agricultural encroachment by 1) completing a landscape level biological assessment and threat analysis of the area, 2) evaluating water ecosystem services provided by the reserve and establishing one community agreement for the Water Ecosystem Services Compensation program, 3) convening local communities to undertake land use planning and zoning, and 4) engaging at least 10 local coffee producers on pilot projects to increase productivity and reduce their impact and expansion into the Reserve. Project activities will contribute towards the development of a management plan for the Reserve.
