The moist forest in eastern Madagascar is characterised by tropical humid and sub-humid forests.
The particular landscape of Fandriana-Marolambo is situated between the Central plateau and eastern escarpment, South of Antananarivo, and is about 150,000 hectares in size.
The moist forests represent an important centre of endemism and contain many species of lemurs as well as over 20 species of small mammals. As their habitat becomes degraded or disappears, all of these species, found nowhere else, are at risk of disappearing forever.
The project goal is to restore the ecological services and socio-economic values of the Fandriana-Marolambo landscape within the Madagascar Moist Forest Ecoregion
The project undertakes analyses of the main causes of forest degradation and identify and implement appropriate restoration strategies in partnership with local authorities and communities.
