The project improves management of existing forests and establishes new forests on abandoned and degraded lands. All together 16 species including a range of rare native trees are planted. The growing trees will sequester carbon, diversify forest landscape, and protect vulnerable areas against soil erosion. The project will also generate income and employment for local villagers and improve their forest management capacity. The environmental impact assessment (EIA) was completed in January 2015.
