This project is part of
The project is seeking to protect this continuous expanse of forest and its endangered species. A further aim is to improve land use planning and put in place appropriate forestry and agroforestry practices to ensure sustainable use of natural resources in the areas bordering the forest. It is setting up an alliance of provinces and local authorities affected, designating critical habitats wherever possible across the entire forest area under the decentralised land-use planning process and then further developing them. In conjunction with local authorities, the project plans measures and ensures they are incorporated into their annual budgets. It is also establishing an ecologically sound agroforestry system in the buffer zone, driving forward largescale reforestation and working towards supplying local households with renewable, sustainably produced raw materials to generate energy.
