The Project has national and international significance as it helps government and GEF to fulfill their strategic objectives. The project helps government to fulfill its constitutional obligations and international environmental commitments as well as contributes to achieve some of the key development objectives such as the sustainable management of dry land natural resources and improving livelihood conditions of the people living in arid and semi-arid areas. Similarly, the project addresses GEF's Strategic Objectives of Land Degradation & Biodiversity. Through its focus on rehabilitation of forest landscapes, the project will also contribute to GEF’s crosscutting program on Sustainable Forest Management.

The duration of the project is for 5 years (2011-2016& has been designed to implement in two target sites of Sarayan and Rigan with the total area of 462068 ha.Konarbai sub watershed of AbBarik watershed in Rigan, Kerman and Hamboo sub-watershed of Se Qaleh watershed in Sarayan, South Khorasan province with the total area of 298500 & 163568 ha. which are representative of typical arid and semi-arid regions of Iran have been selected as project pilot sites to demonstrate effective participatory and integrated sustainable land and forest management (SLFM) practices.

The primary stakeholders and immediate target beneficiaries of the project are the local people and communities living in the project watersheds and the local and provincial level governments. They will benefit from increased capacity to plan, implement and evaluate participatory integrated SLFM initiatives at village and watershed levels.  Local stakeholders, including both women and men, who will be principal participants in the planning and execution of the various activities, bring with them their traditional, time tested and practical suggestions to address the challenges of land degradation, deforestation and loss of biodiversity.

The project aims to restore and enhance biodiversity and the capacity of degraded forest landscapes and lands to deliver essential ecosystem goods and services for sustainable livelihoods, food security and combating desertification by removing barriers to participatory integrated SLFM initiatives at watershed level in Rigan and Sarayanpilot sites.
