Sustainable forest management to decrease CO2 Emissions (KfW8)
The module objective is sustainable management and protection of forest ecosystems as a contribution to enhanced biodiversity values and climate change mitigation while simultaneously providing increased livelihood opportunities for the local population. The project aims to
- promote integrated forest management as a measure to decrease CO2 emissions with a focus on natural and planted production and protection forest resources, which at the same time provides opportunities to link ecosystem integrity with livelihood improvement of the forest dependent population, and
- demonstrate effective biodiversity protection of protected area forest ecosystems through engagement of the local population in performance based protection and monitoring agreements.
