2 project proposals
2. Project Proposals

Project 1. Establishment of Biodiversity Monitoring System


To build the capacity for the improvement of conservation and management of biodiversity by establishing the biodiversity identification and monitoring system at local and national level.


  • Arranging the analysis and assessment of current state of biodiversity hotspots

  • Selecting and identifying the monitoring station sites in project areas

  • Providing and delivering the necessary information, software and all facilities

  • Arranging the national and international training for delivered software, technologies and facilities.

  • Arranging meetings for identification of standard monitoring indicators and method for biodiversity monitoring

  • Developing the biodiversity monitoring regulations and its dissemination

  • Arranging the workshop and study tour to review the current situation and learn the methodologies for capacity building

  • Arranging the training for biodiversity experts, officials in monitoring stations and rangers

  • Building biodiversity database in project areas and promoting their connection with National CHM.

  • Introducing and propagating the importance of biodiversity monitoring through mass media.

Project 2. Updating of the “Red Data Book” and capacity- buildingfor the conservation of threatened species


To update the existing “Red Data Book” (animal and plant) and build the capacity for in-situ and ex-situ conservation of threatened species by assessing the priority order of threatened species conservation.


  • Reinvestigating and reassessing the threatened species of plant and animal

  • Re-identifying the priority order of threatened species conservation;

  • Assess the MVP of major threatened species;

  • Transferring the appropriate technologies for habitat diversity;

  • Designing the ecological corridors between habitats;

  • Preparing, publishing and disseminating the updated “Red Data Book”

  • Developing and technical transferring for captive breeding of major threatened species in botanical gardens and zoo

  • Establishing a species registration system for the threatened species which are ex-situ conserved;

  • Developing plans and framework for the return of main threatened species to nature

Project 3 Conservation of Black-faced spoonbill and



To identify the breeding site and improve the conservation of Black faced Spoonbill and cranes, the world threatened species.


  • Arranging survey on the breeding sites of black-faced spoonbill and regularly monitor and research their breeding conditions.

  • Investigating and improving the conservation of breeding places of black-faced spoonbill.

  • Re-evaluating the habitat conditions of wintering and transit area of cranes.

  • Improving the research on and implementation of the dispersion of wintering areas of Red crowned crane.

  • Improving the eco-environment of expected wintering areas of cranes.

  • Strengthening the legislations for the conservation of black-faced spoonbill and crane.

  • Creating the demonstration site of community-based reserve management.
