Equitable’ use of natural resources

The population of Anjiabe, a village in the heart of the Bobaomby forest, in Diana region, earns their living by the regulated production of charcoal from jujube trees. The alignment of the community needs with conservation activities impelled the Fondation Tany Meva to finance the project implemented by the NGO MAVOA. The project concerns the control and monitoring of natural resources with a view to “equitable” and responsible exploitation of charcoal production. Firewalls are installed, patrols are organized and materials are made available to communities.
