I am part of the Ecosystem Stewardship priority.
My role is to manage the Itremo massif protected area (24,788Ha) especially the activities (planning/realization) and staff in the sites.
We develop with communities the conservation (habitats, species, ecosystems), sustainable development (agroforestry, livestock, other income-generating activities), and restoration.
We regularly monitor all activities and provide the necessary databases to improve the Protected Area management.
