Contribute to the conservation of key biodiversity areas (KBAs) and protected areas within the Eastern Afromontane Region in Yemen by reducing risks driven by unsustainable economic development and the ongoing economic shift toward unsustainable harvesting of biological resources. The project aims to strengthen grassroots organizations to support the enforcement and implementation of internationally accepted environmental safeguard policies and environmental impact assessment (EIA) systems and to advocate for mainstreaming biodiversity conservation in development planning in the KBAs in Yemen.

Strategic Direction: 2 Improve the protection and management of the KBA network throughout the hotspot.
