Training on Rainforestation for Protected Area Superintendents


This field-based course was designed to train representatives from the Department of Environment & Natural Resources to develop land rehabilitation programs using Rainforestationtechniques. Through a series of lectures, field visits, and hands-on exercises, they learned what they need in order to establish demonstration plots and implement Rainforestation projects. As trained trainers, they are expected to take this knowledge back to their regions, lead the implementation of local projects, and spread the technology.
