of this forest and the conservation of its rich flora and fauna.

• support for development activities to provide alternative sources of income for the local community

than the non-sustainable exploitation of natural resources;

• promotion of tourism;

• restoration of degraded forest;

• raising awareness among the local community about the importance of the forest and its biodiversity;

• and research to inform decision-making
