The Hariyo Ban program is focusing in the TAL districts of Kanchanpur, Dadeldhura, Kailali, Bardia, Banke and Dang. It is also focusing in Lamjung, Tanahun, Kaski, Syangja, Manang, Chitwan, Nawalparasi and Gorkha in CHAL. Programs related to wildlife poaching and trafficking will include two corridors namely Kaligandaki (Mustang, Myagdi, Baglung) and Trisuli (Rasuwa, Nuwakot, Dhading) in addition to the above mentioned districts.
The locations were identified by taking into account an analysis of socio-economic and biological information for both the landscapes. Broad criteria for prioritizing the intervention sites included current status of biodiversity and ecosystem services, vulnerability to climate change, and complementarity with other donors, programs and projects.
