General

Project will reduce the threat of agricultural and livestock expansion and intensification into the Ostua dry forest by working with local stakeholders. Project activities include: 1) establishing a model for connectivity between dry forests and riparian zones, 2) implementing land-use planning and more efficient livestock production systems in conjunction with local communities, 3) engaging with at least 10 ranchers to improve practices and apply for forest ecosystem services payments, and 4) systemizing the pilot model to scale it up throughout the Montecristo-Trinational Biological Corridor.
