Wai-Hau CF Biodiversity Conservation Project
The aim of the proposed project is to educate the community people of Wai Hau on how to manage their resources (land & sea) sustainably. The approach is to carry out awareness programs and activities on ways to conserve the environment by protecting the natural biodiversity and reducing the traditional method of gardening (shifting cultivation of slash and burn) and land degradation and general destruction to the natural biodiversity.

In its implementation plan of activities the project looks at organizing different genders and value of information, equal opportunities or participation by all genders, and gender data collection. The need of both genders especially women is highly considered as a culture dominated by men, there is more improvement in cooperation, as women’s views are being taken into account.
Notable Community Participation
The WAI HAU Conservation Project received its planning grant last year 2014 to develop a full proposal, but already has a noteworthy community participation during its consultation program in the southern part of Malaita Province. The project was initiated by the people of Aenaura tribal land to conserve the leather back turtles, to protect the natural resources and biodiversity of the said tribal land. A wide consultation and awareness program was conducted in three populated communities. Rural people were consulted for information and their views gathered to scope the proposed project based on the real need of the communities and what can be achieved.
