Promote transboundary landscape conservation as a strategy for adapting to climate change for ensuring sustained ecosystem services in the Eastern Himalaya
TBM Phase III (1 April 2008 – 31 March 2011) particularly looked into promoting a transboundary landscape approach as a means to climate change adaptation that ensures long-term sustenance of ecosystem services in the Eastern Himalayan region.
1. To strengthen the Kangchenjunga Landscape as an integrated conservation-linked livelihood development model to enhance conservation and sustain ecosystem services in the landscape and to initiate scaling-up of the landscape approach in the Brahmaputra Salween Landscape shared by China, India, and Myanmar
2. To fill in the knowledge gaps and have a better understanding of the impacts of climate change on biodiversity resources and services provided by protected areas, corridors, and transboundary landscapes and their implications for vulnerable mountain communities in the Kangchenjunga Landscape
3. To enhance capacities of collaborating partners and local communities in understanding the impact of climate change, overcome vulnerabilities and increase knowledge on sustenance of ecosystem services
4. To enhance project performance through regular monitoring and evaluation activities
