    The Project objective is to secure the long-term protection of Key Biodiversity Areas in Tanintharyi through integrated planning and management at land and seascape scales, with interconnectivity from ridge to reef. This will be achieved by protecting KBAs through various conservation mechanisms, such as protected areas, community forest reserves and locally managed marine areas, and maintaining ecological functions in the surrounding land and seascapes using the High Conservation Value (HCV approach) to identify and safeguard the natural capital upon which local communities are to a greater or lesser extent dependent.
