5. Project description
Provide a short description of the project including strategies, regional challenges, aims and specific project activities.: 

Solid project infrastructures have been established in Bazhu to carry out sustainable water resource management activities. Learning and capacity building is implemented in cooperation with a broad range of local stakeholders – schools, grassroots organizations, monasteries, nature reserve staff, government officials, and others – and is further consolidated with the engagement of the Greater Shangri-la Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE). The project showcases a process of community water conservation which combines scientific and traditional knowledge to ensure that is suited to the local environment, embedded in the local context and involves the active participation of the local community. It is hoped that the project will become a model for other community water conservation initiatives in the region and beyond.
