WHO WE ARE

Together we can make a better Sri Lanka

Fundamentally we all depend on nature; and ecosystems provide us with the opportunity to describe, understand, and fit in with nature.  Food, water, timber, and genetic resources; regulating services such as the climate, floods, diseases, and water quality; cultural services such as recreation, aesthetic enjoyment, and spiritual fulfillment are some of the goods and services provided by ecosystems.  Due to increased development activities and greater consumption of natural resources, ecosystems are under pressures than ever before.

WHO BENEFITS

 

There is a strong link between human well being and ecosystems.  The assertion of “human condition is tightly linked to environmental condition” suggests that conservation, management and development should achieve both ecological and social progress.  The core idea of the Ecosystem Conservation and Management Project (ESCAMP) is to generate national and local level environmental and community benefits.

At the national level, the project hopes to develop the capacity of key implementing agencies, the Forest Department (FD) and the Department of Wildlife Conservation (DWC), manage Protected Areas (PAs) effectively based on modern PA and landscape management approaches, improve the quality of nature-based tourism, and achieve better institutional coordination mechanism at national and sub-national levels.
