Incorporate South Sudan into the activities of the East African Plant Red List Authority (EAPRLA), assist in the development of national capacity in plant conservation, and initiate the red-listing process for the endemic plants of South Sudan. The grantee will establish the IUCN/SSC Red-Listing Toolkit in South Sudan as a mechanism to identify priority species and areas for plant conservation; develop a work plan with the University of Juba to build national capacity and regional collaboration with EAPRLA colleagues in Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia, including exploratory field work with university staff and students to a selected key biodiversity area; and provide South Sudanese institutions and teams with access to previously inaccessible data from international and regional collections.

Strategic Direction: 3 Initiate and support sustainable financing and related actions for the conservation of priority KBAs and corridors.
