    Securing Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable use in the Huangshan Municipality of China - GCP/CPR/049/GFF 2024

    Huangshan Municipality lies in the Anhui Province of eastern China. It is a forested, mountainous area that is home to over 1 800 species of plants and456 species of vertebrates, comprising seven percent of all known plant and animal species in the country. For many reasons, including illegal logging, hunting and fishing, the impacts of climate change, and an increase in domestic and international tourism to the area, the biodiversity in Huangshan Municipality is threatened. In fact, many of the plant and animal species in the area are endangered. Despite a strong commitment by the government and the public to conserve Huangshan’s biodiversity and ensure its sustainable use, the management of existing PAs needs improvement. To achieve this goal, the project evaluated, adapted and implemented best practices derived from the successfully managed Huangshan National Scenic Reserve (HNSR) to strengthen the management capacities of staff in the network of PAs established prior to the project. A tiered, community-based approach was implemented to ensure sustainability and the effective management of the large number of existing PAs.

    The FAO project “Securing Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use in Huangshan Municipality” was implemented in China (Huangshan Municipality) and funded by the Global Environment Facility. The rationale behind the project intervention was that the biodiversity conservation objectives were not being fully achieved through the existing mechanisms. The final independent evaluation of the project rated it as Satisfactory, and verified that most of the outcomes and outputs of the project were achieved. The main shortcoming was limited progress with best practices and lessons learned from the project being taken up and replicated elsewhere in non-participating nature reserves. Evaluation recommendations included finalizing the sustainability plan; continuing to support non-participating reserves to improve management effectiveness; assessing the effectiveness of a related innovative protected area management model; and considering opportunities to promote internationally the project’s achievements, best practices and innovations.
