Participatory community management
One of the major challenges of the PAPfor programme is to convince the populations living in the vicinity of the forests to take ownership of the governance of natural resources and to adopt a sustainable development system. This system should enable income generation for communities and benefits from ecosystem services based on good integrated conservation practices, within the framework of local development plans. Support in eco-tourism development and water management is also implemented. The project places particular emphasis on a gender approach during the implemen- tation of its activities.
