This project focusses on the protection of accessible and inaccessible forest areas. This will allow for the forest to re-grow. Surveillance teams keep the area under rigorous monitoring to prevent illegal logging and squatters from claiming lands. To achieve permanent surveillance, the project employs local village members who live within the project region. To qualify them, they receive special training in forest management and monitoring. Regular reports will locate existing agricultural areas so as to identify areas that may have been newly deforested. Another aspect of this project is the distribution of improved cook stoves that replace inefficient traditional open fires to reduce fire wood consumption.
