The Huyono Eco Forestry Project
The Huyono Eco Forestry Project
A grant of US$35,714.29 was provided to the East New Britain Sosel Ekson Komiti incollaboration with the local community to develop two eco forestry projects on the island of Bougainville. The Island of Bougainville has for the last 10 years been under rebel control however recently April 1999 a peace agreement has been signed. The SGP funded the materials for the eco forestry activities. The activities brought spin off benefits to the local people.

The sustainable timber practices were introduced to limit the disturbances to the near by trees and plants. The local people also had the opportunity to sell their timber for cash income.
