Conduct an assessment of the status of endemic plants, focusing on the Iris lortetii. Identify and map the locations of the species communities, raise awareness of the local communities on plant biodiversity and conservation. Build capacity of community teams to develop and improve their practical plant skills including in situ surveying and protection. Support the incorporation of plant conservation in the management of proposed protected area. Increase the numbers of Iris population in their natural locations using the Seed Ball technique

Strategic Direction: 4 Strengthen the engagement of civil society to support the conservation of plants that are critically endangered or have highly restricted ranges
