Iran Project Sites Map


The UNEP/GEF Siberian Crane Wetlands Project (SCWP) aims to increase the capacity for management of three project sites in Iran, which have different degrees of protection under national legislation. These protected areas are all designated wetlands of international importance under the Ramsar Convention, in common with a number of other sites in the Caspian Lowlands of Iran.

The project aims to achieve sustainable use of resources and improve conservation and protection at the project sites by actively involving stakeholders, including local communities, in the decision-making procedures for site management; through environmental education and awareness activities; and implementing small-scale pilot projects promoting alternative livelihoods.
