Funding will be used to finalize management plans, build capacity for local communities to implement and monitor management plans, secure alternative sources of funding for protected area management, adapt conservation strategies to emerging threats from climate change and infrastructure, and develop web-based tools for the assessment of infrastructure impacts on basin-wide fish migration processes.
