Protect Amoron'Onilahy against the overexploitation of wood energy resources linked to coal mining. No fewer than 300 households engage in coal mining to provide for their needs and to meet the wood energy needs of urban agglomerations. The annual production of coal in the locality is close to 2,500 tons, equivalent to the exploitation of 1,600 hectares of natural forest per year in the south-west.

Strategic Direction: 1 Empower local communities to protect and manage biodiversity in priority key biodiversity areas.
