The ongoing Biodiversity Conservation Corridor Initiative (BCI) is the flagship program of the Core Environment Program (CEP-BCI) of the GMS endorsed by the GMS Leaders at the Second GMS Summit in July 2005. The intended outcome of BCI implementation is that by 2015, GMS countries will endeavor to maintain and improve the cover, condition, and biodiversity of forestlands and associated ecosystems in priority biodiversity conservation landscapes intersecting ADB supported GMS economic corridors. The GMS governments, with support from ADB and nongovernmental organization (NGO) partners, have identified the most important biodiversity conservation landscapes in the subregion that are vulnerable to increased development pressures and environmental degradation.
