  • Replanting 3,000 hectares of deforested or degraded areas, mainly near urban settlements, for sustainable fuel-wood production.
Principle:
  • Replanting deforested or degraded areas, usually near urban settlements, to provide fuel wood.
Expected result:
  • Supply of sustainable fuel wood from these plantations will reduce pressure on natural forests.
Process:
  1. Increase awareness of, and educate, people at different levels on sustainable use of all types of energy;
  2. Identify (in the sites where WWF works) potential zones suitable for reforestation activities (to provide fuelwood for cities);
  3. Together with the State Departments involved (Environment, Forests and Tourism, Energy and Mines), develop a reforestation plan;
  4. Train model farmers to establish and maintain tree nurseries;
  5. Develop and implement a management plan for the reforestation schemes (ie. forests where reforestation activities take place);
  6. Participate in regional, national and international events on reforestation for energy.

Sites:

  • Andapa zone: Betaolana and Tsaratanana forest corridors - 120 hectares.
  • Vondrozo zone - 70 hectares.
  • Ivohibe zone - 80 hectares.
  • Fandriana-Marolombo zone - 200 hectares.
  • Taolagnaro zone - 100 hectares.
  • Spiny forest: 2,400 hectares.
