Benin

National Park of Pendjari is adjacent to agroforestry systems which hold several native species. Those species provide food (for human and fodder for animal) in times of scarcity and other products that generate income to farmers and their families while helping to stabilize soils. However, much of the species are often neglected in policy decisions and landscape strategies.

Alphonse Karenzi

Rwanda

Gisagara Forests are well known as the home of regional threatened birds and important habitat to many regional species of plants and animals. More than 90% of population (farmers’) productivity relies on those forest resources.

Amar Kunwar

Nepal

The Blackbuck (Antelope cervicapra) is one of the nationally critically endangered mammals of Nepal, found in the wild in Krishnasar Conservation Area in Bardia only. Their population is at great risk as their habitats have become fragmented and they are facing huge anthropogenic disturbances, forest and grassland resource extraction and human-blackbuck conflicts.

Ana Luiza Violato Espada

Brazil

Over the last three decades, Brazil has led establishment of new protected areas, the vast majority of which are designated for sustainable use. Conservation efforts in these areas have included timber management to provide economic benefits to forest residents and deter forest degradation which occurs through illegal logging.

Brazil

The Araguaia floodplain in central Brazil is a wetland that covers ca. 90,000 km2 at maximum flood level along 5 months, sheltering a high biodiversity, including endemic and threatened species, and provide ecosystem goods and services, including water and food supply, and fertile lands. However, this region are under sustained pressure from irrigated rice cultivation.

Andrea del Pilar Tarquino Carbonell

Argentina

Habitat fragmentation, caused by geological processes or human activity could create small, isolated patches, disrupting and causing local extinctions. Facing with this fact, is necessary inferring which factors affect small mammals dynamics and their ecosystem. The Red Viscacha Rat (RVR) is an octodontid rodent, endemic to the arid lands of central western Argentina.
