This IKI Small Grants project addresses biodiversity conservation and climate resilience in Western and Southern Mongolia, which is home to the second largest population of snow leopards in the world. Community lands have little protection and are at high risk of biodiversity loss from poaching, mining, and large infrastructure, threatening communities that rely on this land for livelihood. The project helps to reinforce the land rights of 33 communities. It sets up and operationalises legally supported and government-accredited Community Responsible Areas (CRAs) to conserve snow leopard habitats. It assists communities in sustainably managing lands for pastoral production and biodiversity conservation. After legal recognition, the communities receive long-term assistance in diversifying their livelihoods and protecting and monitoring wildlife.
