Key Activities and Innovations: REMP works to conserve biodiversity, maintain critical ecological functions, sustainably use renewable resources and secure the livelihoods of the area's inhabitants. Working closely with district authorities, communities and other stakeholders, REMP has taken important steps in developing an environmental management plan at district and village levels.
