NGO FANAMBY approach

Long before the identification and environmental toward its, peoples of diverse ethnic groups, so in that period, they was running away from the colonial authorities repression or simply looking for productive land. Slowly, they are  entered in the corridor forest and founded their life.
Now, many villages are depending on this forest resources through the differents activities threatening directly or indirectly the corridor environment.

In 4 years, between 2000 and 2004, around 20,000 ha of natural forests have disappeared. So, the environmental emergency was obvious and urgent but it’s not possible and unfairt without  communities consent.

The tourism introduction into the enclosed area is one of the solutions to fight the progressive forest degradation. Fanamby should know that  tourism is also a leverage for community development.
