community 2

This approach is linking and working with governmental forest agencies ,local community and other Environmental Organizations in efforts to regenerate degraded forests, reforests deforested areas, and decrease carbon emissions that contribute to climate change.

The benefits for the local community involvement in the management and protection of their forests would be to provide employment and to supplement income from both the wage labor and additional agriculture which would then strength the entire local economy while improving environmental conditions and mitigating climate change.

It is important to engage the local community members, many of which are indigenous, since presumably they would have deeper knowledge of the local ecosystems as well as the life cycles of those ecosystems over time.

A mango seedling can -- after a few years -- bear economically beneficial fruit.
