Foresters without Borders - Progress Report April 2017
The Island of Mataso is one of the disadvantaged islands that were devastated by Tropical Cyclone Pam two years ago. The impacts were so devastating given the connection of the people’s livelihood with the only limited resources they have, as the entire forest resources and ecosystems were destroyed.
The Vanuatu Foresters Association along with the Department of Forests with the support of the Institute of Foresters of Australia has helped the affected areas with nursery tools and materials, technical support and forestry seedlings for immediate replanting. The focus was not only on Forestry farmers but also members of the affected communities to be able to contribute to their forest restoration.
