Guardians of the Headwaters II: Biodiversity, water and climate in six snow leopard landscapes. Summary Report.

To advance climate-smart natural resource management planning in snow leopard landscapes, we mapped and overlaid snow leopard habitat, current and potential human impacts, protected areas, selected water resources, and climate vulnerabilities in six snow leopard conservation landscapes in high Asia. These landscapes are recognized as priorities of the Global Snow Leopard and Ecosystem Protection Program (GSLEP) and the USAID-WWF project, Conservation and Adaptation in Asia’s High Mountain (AHM) Landscapes and Communities. The AHM project is supporting field-based conservation, climate change adaptation, and sustainable development efforts in high mountain communities.
