The project was the first attempt in Jordan, and probably the Middle East, to try and link the conservation of biodiversity with the socioeconomic development of local people. Several thousand people from nomadic and settled communities live in and around the Dana Protected Area, many of whom are partially or entirely dependent on it for their livelihood, most notably for grazing goats. These people are among the most disadvantaged in Jordan and include nomadic refugee families, displaced after the 1947 partition of Palestine. Their use of the protected area is causing serious ecological problems and especially the excessive grazing pressure from domestic live-stock. Furthermore, they were not consulted at the time the protected area was established and were, at the beginning of the project, openly hostile to its designation,to RSCN and to the regulations imposed on hunting and grazing.
