Restoring and protecting vulnerable ecosystems in Niger
Extreme poverty in Niger is pushing rural communities to over-exploit their forest resources, including in National Park W. This is threatening the survival of a large range of plants and animals as well as local communities who rely on the land for their livelihoods. Forest management must go hand-in-hand with improving the lives of these communities, so that unsustainable use of the land stops. This project will train communities to protect the vital forest resources they rely on to survive, alongside demonstrating how they can earn a sustainable income from trees.
