The project aims to integrate the conservation action plan for the Bengal florican (Houbaropsis bengalensis), a Critically Endangered bustard, into five community forestry management plans. Action for Development (AFD) will work closely with the Forestry Administration, Wildlife Conservation Society and the community forestry committees to conduct regular patrol activities and allow suitable tree harvesting to make favorable habitat for the Bengal florican during the wet season.

Strategic Direction: 3 Engage key actors in reconciling biodiversity conservation and development objectives, with a particular emphasis on the Northern Limestone Highlands and Mekong River and its major tributaries
