The GEF project “Integrated Landscape Management to Secure Nepal’s Protected Areas and Critical Corridors” is focused on the Terai Arc Landscape (TAL). The project is based on a landscape management approach to ensure that buffer zones around Protected Areas, and corridors that connect Protected Areas, are managed and conserved for the region’s globally significant large ranging mammals, including tigers, rhinos, and elephants. The project expects to improve the management of approximately 2.5 million hectares, and mitigate over 1 million tons of C02 emissions.
