Reclaiming and strengthening indigenous culture is vital to maintaining ancestral connections to nature. This must be passed onto future generations by celebrating indigenous traditions.

Meanwhile sustainable community forestry initiatives are creating low impact income for communities that rely on healthy forests for their survival.
