Work closely with each municipality in Madagascar’s Menabe-Antinema region, which was declared a new protected area in 2015 under IUCN category VI. Develop participatory territorial planning exercises, including zoning plans, that are aligned with the protected area management plan. Support local farmers to adopt more intensive agricultural productions (e.g., peanuts, corn) to increase income while reducing the need for new land. Approach private sector actors in the region to set up voluntary agreements to adopt biodiversity-friendly practices and support local economic development.

Strategic Direction: 2 Enable civil society to mainstream biodiversity and conservation into political and economic decision-making.
