This project delivers a locally-appropriate market-based model for sustainable and equitable Jatamansi (Nardostachys grandiflora) trade from Nepal, supporting Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) commitments and addressing the combined threats to local incomes and healthcare of biodiversity loss, habitat degradation and declining access to natural resources linked to overharvest of medicinal species.
