Management of a National Protected Area

Villagers understand that NPA is a conservation zone where logging is not allowed. The forest provides them with wood, traditional medicine, and food. Cross-border illegal logging and hunting poses a problem. Steel snares put wildlife in danger. Since co-management of villagers and government is implemented, the villagers feel positive change as illegal activities could be reduced while people hunt, fish and collect NTFPs in the correct way.

What is left in the wild

Insects are important for villagers because they help pollinate fruit and other trees. Villagers collect wildlife for food and sell it on the local market.

Understanding the sustainable use of wildlife is important for villager's livelihood because otherwise wildlife will decline. Following regulations can conserve wildlife, e.g.  not hunting or collecting wildlife in prohibited seasons.

Forest Protection in Boualapha

People's livelihood depends on nature in terms of food, housing, agriculture, medicine, etc. Forest protects them from natural disasters such as flooding.

Cutting down too many trees causes flooding and soil erosion in the rainy season and droughts in the dry season. Now, the cooperation between people and government officers in forest patrolling and fire control, ecotourism and benefit sharing make forest protection successful.
