CAWIRAN members believe in stewardship of our planet. It is
therefore, our responsibility to educate and act to promote the
sustainable use, management and conservation of our resources.
The importance of mountain issues has been recognized by the
international community as one of the world's most vulnerable
bio-geographical areas susceptible to land degradation, having variable
climates, heterogeneous habitats often with the unique fauna and flora.
We need to take into account the uncertainty of this fragile
environment to save critical biodiversity. Many global and regional
strategies identify mountains as a priority ecosystem within the
overall sphere/theme of biodiversity. For this reason, we have
partnered with Shahrnaz Village Coop & Rural Development Company for
our projects which focus on the following:
