Résumé du projet

Respecting religious and traditional believes of the different villages in the area, project team will seek advices and expertise of elderly people and experts to sensitize local people regarding value of surrounding natural resources and the ways to protect them. Local community will be empowered on forest degradation with emphasis on forest fires and how to help prevent fires.
