Target Groups

285. Section 1.7 details the benefits in terms of environmental, economic and social sustainability. Benefits can also be organized by geographical scale, with positive socio-economic impacts at local, regional, national and other dry forest levels. 286. Committees for dry forest conservation governance, restoration and monitoring and/or integrated natural resource management will be consolidated at regional and local levels and green jobs will be created and incomes will be increased and diversified. The improvement of productive and management capacities for articulation in value chains, as well as more sustainable territorial and resource management, including protected areas that provide ecosystem services, will contribute to the improvement and sustainability of the livelihoods of men and women, mainly indigenous, who depend on forest ecosystems in the project's direct area of intervention. By expanding the range of livelihood options, in terms of the variety of resources harvested and the restoration of degraded ecosystems, as well as contributing to the improvement of economic income per unit area managed, it will contribute to food security and strengthen their capacity to adapt to climate change. 287. At the national level, and in other dry forest areas, the project will build lessons and improve the tools and capacities of decision-makers and other stakeholders for land and biodiversity management, in order to replicate sustainable biodiversity management models and financial mechanisms for the restoration, conservation and sustainable use of ecosystem services in other dry forest landscapes, which in turn provide benefits to the local population. 288. At the local, regional and national level, these benefits are related to the protection, better management of protected areas, forests of high conservation value, land restoration and reduction of GHG emissions, which will translate to reduced effects of climate change on vulnerable populations, reduced deforestation and land degradation, as well as reduced species extinction and reduced flow of ecosystem services in the dry forest. 289. The project will strengthen cooperation for the valuation and conservation of biodiversity and effective governance in the use of natural resources. It will also contribute to international and national agreements aimed at ensuring healthy and functional ecosystems. The project will protect and restore a source of biodiversity and climate change mitigation that also contributes to degradation neutrality goals, with economic, social and environmental benefits at all levels. 290. In the area of dry forests, the Project will be the opportunity to generate a broad institutional dialogue on the Integrated Management of Natural Resources, with emphasis on this ecosystem and other associated ecosystems, with the purpose of building a territorial management proposal that enhances sectoral intervention in the promotion of conservation and sustainable use of natural resources, thus contributing to the improvement of the quality of life of citizens and the interventions of the sector at national, regional and/or local level.
