Working with the Key Biodiversity Areas partnership, this project will advance 30x30 in the Tropical Andes through helping establishment of new protected and conserved areas to be targeted at the most important sites for nature. It will do so through supporting the identification of Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs), by establishing KBA National Coordination Groups in the Andes. 

The project will support them to convene stakeholders, including Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities, mobilize data and identify KBAs, develop data management tools to facilitate the process, and support decision-makers to utilize the results.
