The project area is considered part of the Caspian (Khazar) forest area of Iran. The Alborz Integrated Land and Water Management Project (2007) is meant to introduce Integrated Water Resources Management principles to the Upper Watershed area. The specific objectives of Component 1 are: Reduce erosion and sedimentation in the upper watershed with a particular focus on protecting the Alborz irrigation water reservoir, Restore and protect natural rangeland and forests and Increase productivity and incomes of communities and forest cooperatives in the area. The spatial coverage of the project area includes the five watershed regions of Azar, Karsang, Eskelim, Babolak and the Lowlands with an overall area of 51,724 ha. The natural character and ecological integrity of the landscape are largely in-tact, and certain attributes of biodiversity in the UW are outstanding, with enormous value, potential, and significance for natural resource conservation at the national and international levels, including: Areas of rare old-growth forest, Forest zones with high densities of Yew tree and viable populations of large carnivores. The upper watershed, which is state land, would be divided into five land-use zones: “Protection” Zone is meant to preserve and/or restore natural biodiversity in forested which is equivalent to the IUCN’s (1994) Category, “Low Impact” Forestry Zone (close to nature forestry), “Salvo pastoral” Forest Zone, Rangeland controlled sustainable grazing and Multiple use Zone - Limited MNRS responsibility.
