A tool for assessing the feasibility and impact potential of Rare project plans
ONON RIVER BASIN (Eco-Tourism)
Impact & Metrics
What: To eliminate the principal threat posed to the endangered Taimen fish, local fisher people and recreational visitors must stop illegal fishing in the Onon River. One of the objective of the Barrier Removal Strategies is eco-tourism activities in the Onon River Basin.

Also WWF and Mongolian Rivers’ Outfitter (MRO) joint implement fly fishing tourism in the area and train fly fishing guiding and techniques.
When:The “Poverty Reduction through Community Based Natural Resource Management in the Onon River Basin” project is going to start on third quarter of 2009.

How: The ADB funded “Poverty Reduction through Community Based Natural Resource Management in the Onon River Basin” project will provide funding to increase alternative livelihood projects within the Onon River Basin people (estimated 200 000 USD during four years) and outreach campaign (with support from Rare) needed to change behaviors.
Feasibility Score: 3.5
Impact Score: 1-4
Enter average scores in the right hand column. Then take the feasibility score and enter it into Miradi and the Impact score and enter it into Miradi. Where either score is below X for either feasibly or impact, consider the strategy to be inappropriate and assess the need to conduct a second BRAVO that reviews a different strategy.
