03 Oct 2017 - Building Advocacy and Developing a Management Plan for the High Mountains of Ibb Protected Areas.

CEPF Region: Eastern Afromontane (EAM) Biodiversity Hotspot 
 
Strategic Direction:  This project area is located in a pKBA called the High Mountains of Ibb (HMI), Yemen with 163,266 ha according to the CEPF eastern Afromontane ecosystem profile. HMI is not a protected area and as reported by the CEPF eastern Afromontane ecosystem profile, HMI contains 24 threatened species; one amphibian, one bird, five fish and 19 plant species, which we believe is far from the real number of threatened species. Jabal Sumarah and Udayn are both KBAs according to the CEPF eastern Afromontane ecosystem profile, with 36,555 ha. and 13,408 ha., respectively. Jabal Dhalem is not mentioned in the CEPF eastern Afromontane ecosystem profile, but contains a very distinctive ecosystem. Jabal Sumarah, Jabal Dhalem, and Udayn along with the HMI were also included in the project because Jabal Sumarah is a part of the HMI and Udayn valley (called Annah) which is already announced as a natural reserve, with poor justification while the biodiversity is higher in the Udayn Mountains, which are also high mountains. Thus, when HMI has mentioned it resembled all thus regions, and it is the biggest pKBA in a single administration unit in Arabia.
