Summary

The presence of large multinational plantations and small holder cash crop plantations in Fako Division have led to massive loss of forest and the disappearance of most timber and Non Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) tree species. This project wants to raise more than 5000 seedlings of timber and NTFPs as livelihood support material to 150 local farmers in the Owe and Ikata Villages of the Muyuka sub division. These seedlings will serve for farm integration, income and forest regeneration
