BCRLIP's objective is to enhance institutional capacity for integrating sustainable livelihoods and biodiversity conservation at the landscape level. This is to be achieved by improving policies, tools and methodologies, knowledge and skills for developing multi-stakeholder partnerships that support mainstreaming of biodiversity conservation objectives, improving rural livelihoods, enhancing learning and replication of successful participatory conservation models, and improving cost-effectiveness and sustainable funding for conservation of biodiversity at the Landscape level.


The Project Global Environmental Objective is to enhance the conservation of globally significant biodiversity and ensure its long-term sustainability by promoting appropriate conservation practices in biodiversity-rich landscapes. This will be accomplished by targeted interventions in and around protected areas as well as changing management practices in intervening production landscapes and eco-sensitive sites.


The Biodiversity Conservation and Rural Livelihood Improvement Project (BCRLIP) visualizes a multi sector and, seemingly antagonistic, multi theme project on a landscape which has often been talked about but not addressed before in a time bound project mode.


A brief foray into the sequence of events in the last few decades in the conservation sector is relevant, as these have led to the recognition of the need of a more inclusive management strategy. It is indeed this recognition that has brought home the need of scaling up conservation-management beyond the Protected Areas to landscape level.


Approach of BCRLIP is unique in itself whereby it integrates biodiversity conservation and Livelihood of the community residing around the sites identified for critical habitats for biodiversity.
