Description du stage : The Safeguarding Biodiversity for Poverty Reduction Project (SBPRP) in Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Vietnam, is one of five components of the GMS Biodiversity Conservation Corridors Initiative (BCI) funded by the ADB. It is the component addressing poverty alleviation through sustainable use of natural resources and development of livelihoods.

The SBPRP will work in pilot sites in each of the three countries. The primary aim of the SBPRP is to measure and assess the ability of community protected area management approaches to deliver poverty reduction, sustainable use and conservation outcomes. The project will involve research, assessment, and targeted livelihood interventions to positively influence the co-management framework.

The Lower Mekong Country Group (CG-1) encompasses IUCN country activities across a range of thematic areas, programs and projects. This Country Group provides overall guidance and support to the SBPRP and similar initiatives, such as the Livelihoods and Landscapes Programme in the Lower Mekong Region.
