Sustainable livelihood fund of Abolhassani nomads tribe

As part of the ICCA initiative and the IUCN/CEESP partnership with GEF SGP, Iran is promoting the tribal fund registrations, right issues and livelihood initiatives working with the Abolhassani Tribe in partnership with Cenesta. The site is located near Zamanabad, one of the sites of Cheetah habitat in Touran. As the Abolhassani tribe has kept the traditional governance structure and also the distance between the summer and winter groundings is relatively short and only 80 kms, chances of success in territory management still exists.
