Hiniduma Biolink Project, Sri Lanka - Reforesting traditional home gardens using the analog forestry concept in wet zones of Sri Lanka
The Hinidum Biolink Project is a cooperative effort between the Conservation Carbon Company and Rainforest Rescue International that aims to build a biodiversity corridor between two remnant forests in Sri Lanka. The document is a plan for this Plan Vivo project, developed in June 2011.
Goals & Approach
The objective of the project is to primarily develop the biodiversity corridor but also reduce threats to flora and fauna from the local communities through involving them into the program. The project focuses on homegarden reforestation and agroforestry with a farmer participatory approach along with the initiation of a payment for ecosystem services program.
Through valuing farmer involvement, the project hopes to both improve forest dyanmics, biodiversity, carbon sequestration, and local livelihoods. No start date is specified.
