Ensure sustainable exploitation of three species of Malagasy baobab in Betainkilotsy, Bepeha Andoviana to improve household income and livelihoods while conserving biodiversity. The project will strengthen organizational and technical capacities of local communities; involve local communities in the sustainable management of Malagasy baobabs; and establish a collaboration between various stakeholders (i.e., operators, local communities, local authorities and ministry of environment) in the baobab exploitation industry.

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