Biodiversity and Ecosystems Services in Agrarian Landscapes

01 Dec 2016 to 30 Nov 2022


A growing world population and changing consumer habits are increasing the global demand for food and renewable raw materials. Consequently, land use is being practiced much too intensively in partner countries, leading to negative consequences such as soil fertility and biodiversity loss. In India, Kenya, and Tajikistan, the project strengthened capacities to preserve biodiversity and ecosystem services in agricultural landscapes. It evaluated and implemented appropriate land use approaches in an exemplary manner. The experience gained formed the foundation for further developing the institutional framework at national and regional levels, especially in India. The results and experiences from the project were shared in a supra-regional dialogue, and the resulting recommendations were disseminated at international levels.
