Project Description

Biodivesity corridors have typical functions as an increase in local populations through connectivity between the populations, spaces for animals and plants movement, social functions: recreation, aesthetic function, community and cultural connectivity. Projects on biodiversity corridors were managed by ADB to develop biodiversity corridors in Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, China, Viet Nam during 2006 - 2016. The projects got some results however challenges have been facing as planning and constructing hydrological power plants, agricultural cultivation, mining, enhancing roads, developing recreation and resident areas affect directly ecosystems, biodiveristy, water resources and people life in the region. Therefore, it is important for defining models on rational utilization of natural capital in biodiversity corridors. The models must undertake basic functions of biodiversity corridor because in order to develop successfully the corridor, the people livelihood must be sure.
