Project Results

More than 2,000 people are benefitting directly from reforestation activities and capacity building. In addition, 35 villages across the Khon Kaen Province are indirectly benefiting from improved habitat conditions through project impacts such as improved soil conditions, increased number and quality of fish, and capacity building. The project is successfully strengthening the capacity of a range of stakeholders to develop an effective mechanism to conserve the forest and ...
