As part of this project, the protected area management is improved in 10 pilot sites in five AMS: Cambodia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand through capacity building on the use of technology for surveillance and wildlife monitoring, improvement of enforcement strategies, and purchase of equipment to support these trainings. The ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) also collaborates with the IUCN Asian Species Action Partnership under this project, on a baseline analysis of Critically Endangered species in ASEAN for the purpose of developing a species conservation action plan for the region. A EU-ASEAN Partners Dialogue on Protected Areas and Wildlife was held in conjunction with the 6th ASEAN Heritage Parks Conference in Lao PDR in October 2019.
