Manambolo Project, Ambalavao (Fianarantsoa Province)

This project aims to protect forests and wetlands, to improve living conditions of local people, to protect forest corridors between protected areas and to promote sustainable resource use.

The local community has been charged with managing a large section of high altitude forest and freshwater systems.

WWF is working with local communities to support their traditional management approaches as they apply to the conservation of forests and freshwater areas.

Agriculture is putting stresses on these resources and threatening the sustainability of biodiversity and the communities that depend on it.
