Project Overview Overview
CEPF Strategic Direction Strategy

Conserve highly threatened Polylepis forests and globally threatened species that live in these high Andean Mountain habitats in Bolivia through an integrated program to support reforestation with Polylepis and native trees. The project will reduce demand for fuelwood through provision of efficient cook stoves to local communities and develop an action plan for globally threatened species.

Strategic Direction: 1 Improve protection and management of 36 priority KBAs to create and maintain local support for conservation and to mitigate key threats.
