Support the establishment of a community-based conservation area in a karst landscape that holds a core population of Francois' langur (Trachypithecus francoisi) in northern Vietnam. Promote recognition by the provincial authorities of local people's management rights with regard to populations and habitats of threatened species. Identify sources of corporate funding and pro bono technical support for the community-managed conservation initiative. Document lessons learned from the pilot and use them to inform the development of policy on community-managed protected areas.
