Lai - Tsak Integrated and Conservation Awareness Development Project
Lai - Tsak Integrated and Conservation Awareness Development Project
The Lai-Tsak Integrated Conservation And Development (ICAD) Project is located in the Lamainda & Sambemanda areas. The objectives of the project are to integrate conservation and development by conserving the Lai-Tsak primary forest, a habitat to faunal & endemic, rare & threathened birds & mammals and plants.

The potential threat was the immense impact on the natural habitat by continuos hunting, bush clearing, repeated cultivation near the forest. The customary landowners realised the decrease in the population of plants and animals and decided to take action on the Lai-Tsak forest range.

The CBO will carry out conservation awareness programmes & trainings, construct nurseries & raise 5000 native tree species seedlings to distribute to 5 clans, promote gender development programmes & engage in eco-tourism & eco forestry activities. The outcome of the project will sustain the habitat and generate an income thorugh the eco-enterprises for the local people to improve and sustain their livelihood.
