Goals & Objectives

The project aims to restore forest resources (timber and NTFP) and increase revenue for community members in order to sustainably maintain community forests.

  1. To ensure the community forest is well managed by the local community, capable of protecting the forest, producing seedlings, and implementing forest restoration
  2. To rehabilitate the community forest by using multiple species with high economic value and sustainably managed to benefit the local communities
  3. To disseminate the project experiences and lessons in order to ensure the beneficial effects on other CFs and to sustain the activities after project completion
