Conservation and Sustainable Use of Wetlands in Nepal (CSUWN) is a joint undertaking of the Government of Nepal/Ministry of Forests and Soil Conservation (MFSC), Global Environment Facility (GEF), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and IUCN Nepal. Its main partners are the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation (DNPWC) and Department of Forests (DoF). The goal of the Project is to ensure the maintenance and enhancement of wetland biodiversity and environmental goods and services for improved local livelihoods in Nepal. Its main objective is to strengthen national and local capacity on ecosystem management and sustainable use of wetland biodiversity in Nepal. The Project basically works to ensure the achievement of its three outcomes:
1. Wetland biodiversity conservation values integrated into national policy and planning framework
2. Institutional capacity strengthened for wetland conservation and sustainable use,
3. Collaborative management of wetland resources enhanced for conservation and sustainable livelihood.
