Agricultural productivity, forest cover and biodiversity are increased on deforested land in COFAV and Itremo, through forest restoration and locally adapted, low-input agroforestry systems, that emphasise sustainable soil management and native species and that offer communities viable alternatives to the prevalent damaging agricultural practices such as shifting slash and burn cultivation. At least 3,000 households in 26 communities will benefit directly with improved livelihoods.
