Grantee Name: 
Biodiversity Institute of Kansas University
Project Overview Overview
CEPF Strategic Direction Strategy

Define conservation priorities in three conservation corridors of Peru with a perspective of climate change effects. The project seeks to build potential maps for priority species sampling in the three corridors, built potential maps of species distribution under two climate change scenarios and climatic refuges maps for trigger species in order to direct future conservation efforts in the corridors. Financing also aims to develop conservation strategies for the priority species in the three corridors and their incorporation into the planning and management instruments of regional governments.

Strategic Direction: 5 Safeguard globally threatened species.
