Sustainability of the Bar Valley Project

Although it is hard to fix specific rules for the sustainability of natural resources, certain lessons can be learned from the project in Bar Valley.

Community organization and their improved management skills

Over the last five years, the local communities have learned the importance of wildlife conservation. The community is well organized and has developed the necessary management skills to sustain their activities.

One example of improved the management capacity is the system of protection that was established. The system for protecting the ibex habitat has been done on a locally initiated basis which has satisfied all the members of the community. Protection activities are now being carried out on a regular basis with few conflicts. Likewise, the management committee is taking on other rural development issues.
