In conjunction with local communities, MPCC encourages economic development opportunities through cultivation of medicinal plants, a decentralized system of nurseries raising 50,000 plants of 50 different species, and a network of herbal production centers.
By promoting cultivation of medicinal herbs, MPCC relieves much of the pressure on dwindling natural supplies of these plants.
Through collaborative botanical inventories, villagers and MPCC have laid a sound foundation for conservation work in the state.
