The “Ecoregion Conservation Plan for the Caucasus” lays the framework for nature conservation and guides the efforts of all conservation actors working in the Caucasus Ecoregion. In a collaborative effort to account for the important progress made since the previous edition of the document published in 2006, the plan has recently been revised and updated by the Caucasus Biodiversity Council (CBC) supported by the WWF Caucasus Programme Office. The IUCN Caucasus Cooperation Centre has been an observer to the CBC since 2006 and played an important role in the revision process.
The updated Ecoregion Conservation Plan helps mitigate threats to the rich Caucasus biodiversity by establishing targets and actions for conserving priority ecosystems and species for the entire Ecoregion. This regional conservation strategy will play an important role in supporting government, non-government and international organizations in prioritizing their actions.
