This project is part of
The project aims to strengthen and support the management of protected areas in the Municipio de La Paz. It is mainly advising the municipality on drafting and implementing management plans for the 27 protected areas. Furthermore, adaptation measures are being designed that consider the impact of glacial retreat and the associated reduction in the amount of water available to La Paz and neighbouring communities as well as the spread of agricultural activities into local forests. At the end of the project, all protected areas should have management plans that cover specific activities. These will include reforestation using native tree species, studies on aquatic animals and plants, environmental education programmes for civil society, the management of water catchment areas and environmental services.
