Education and Awareness for Biodiversity Conservation and Ecotourism development in Lamap community.
One of the major threats to Biodiversity in Vanuatu is the loss of native low land forest to the creation of large agricultural plantations. The Lamap community and other nearby villagers are within some of the large agricultural plantations. There has been limited areas for their family garden crops and the problems of raoming agricultural domesticated mammal, the pigs and cattles. That much of the subsistence farming are done in the slope inland areas of the island in newly cut forested areas.

The project is a community base initiative to build community capacity to address threats to biodiversity management in Lamap community and the nearby villages through;
the establishment of environment market centre for over 400 people, demonstrate sustainable foo garden agriculture using alley cropping method, the establishmnet of community ecoourism through the development of a hiking trail system for adventure travel in the native forest so to promote environmental stweardship for biodiversity and culutre protection.
