Create task forces in the Chora, Hurumu and Yayu districts of the Yayu Biosphere Reserve in Ethiopia to better manage the reserve, fostering relationships between local stakeholders and regional and federal decision-making structures. Train school children and families in conservation activities; provide post-harvest training to coffee and honey producer associations; train jobless youth in fuel briquette production; and lead members of parliament on tours of the biosphere reserve so they better understand its economic and social value to the country.
