    The Rehabilitation of Degraded Agricultural Lands (RDAL) project by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF), in partnership with the Government of Sri Lanka through the Ministry of Mahaweli Development and Environment (MMDE), aims to encourage the use of sustainable land management practices in agricultural lands in the central highlands of Sri Lanka. International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)’s role in this project involves developing innovative financing mechanisms to promote Sustainable Land Management (SLM). In order to achieve this, IUCN has formulated an approach which is laid out in this report the Ecosystem Services Assessment in Selected Agricultural Lands in Kandy, Badulla and Nuwara Eliya Districts of Sri Lanka The objective of this report is to assess the ecosystem services of agricultural landscapes in the three districts (project area) Kandy, Badulla and Nuwara Eliya. By identifying the ecosystem services generated and assessing current land management practices. A rapid assessment was conducted to assess the adoption of sustainable land management practices of four agricultural land use types, identify and map the associated ecosystem services, and utilize existing frameworks and databases to quantify the ecosystem service values. A generalized valuation highlights that these ecosystem services have significant value for both society and for farmers and landowners. Therefore, identifying and implementing mechanisms to encourage farmers to adopt sustainable land management practices on their farmlands can generate both private and public values.

    Rehabilitating Degraded Agricultural Lands in the Central Highlands of Sri Lanka - GCP/SRL/063/GFF 2023

    Land degradation is a serious problem in Sri Lanka. The most severely degraded lands are found in the Central Highlands (CH) of the country, specifically around the districts of Kandy, Nuwara Eliyaand Badulla. The CH are important for many reasons, including the provisioning of water and critical habitats for biodiversity, as well as for food production. The rehabilitation of these lands, which are severely affected by soil erosion and declining soil fertility, is key to boosting livelihoods and food production in the area and in the country as a whole. This project was designed to combat land degradation in the CH through the introduction of sustainable land management (SLM) practices.
