Reduce the pressure on the montane forest of Mt Kasigau through a reforestation program on the surrounding lowlands. Activities include empowering and involving communities in propagating indigenous tree species and replanting areas seriously denuded by uncontrolled charcoal burning and logging for domestic timber usage, as well as restoring depleted hardwood tree species to improve soil conservation and water catchments in the area.

Strategic Direction: 1 Increase the ability of local populations to benefit from and contribute to biodiversity conservation, especially in and around Lower Tana River Forests; Taita Hills; East Usambaras/Tanga; Udzungwas; and Jozani Forest
