Biodiversity

ICEM has over 20 years of experience in biodiversity conservation and protected area management. We have led and managed many projects and programs for the conservation of landscapes and ecoregions including development of action plans, focused studies and habitat rehabilitation. ICEM led in the ground breaking Protected Areas and Development (PAD) project involving Mekong countries and many international and local conservation organizations. ICEM was instrumental in designing international collaborative approaches to conservation in the Mekong region and with the countries of the Coral Triangle.

We have a history of forestry management and restoration, identification and enrichment of biodiversity corridors, working with communities in management of non-timber forest products (NTFP) and of survey and sustainable use of wetlands of international importance.

However, there is a critical need to understand and respond to the risks inherent in the current "growth at all costs" paradigm. The purpose of the study is to improve the quality of planning and investment in the 3S region.
