Legislation is not enough to secure the future of existing forests. The local communities have an important role in keeping the forest alive. The WIF Conservation Project will reward communities with annual support for protecting the forest, based on annual Planet advanced satellite observation to monitor the extent of the forest to secure accurate conservation status. The reward will exceed short-term economic benefits from cutting trees- The project will in addition establish community energy forests with energy-rich sustainable gliricidia trees and providing fuel-saving stoves for all families in the project areas.
