Centro de Desenvolvimento Comunitario is working the Mundo Perdido KBA, a mountainous area straddling the Baucau and Viqueque districts within Venilale and Ossu sub-districts of Timor-Leste. CDC is training farmers in sustainable agriculture practice, leading reforestation activities, and increasing environmental awareness. If successful, 75 farmers will be trained, 520 hectares of land will be rehabilitated, and customary law (“tara bandu”) will be developed and implemented in four small communities (“aldeias”) relating to small-scale logging, hunting, and environmentally harmful agricultural practices.

Strategic Direction: 3 Support sustainable natural resource management by communities in priority sites and corridors
