Main goals

As part of the management of its New Protected Areas (NAP), Fanamby has created a GIE (Groupement d’Intérêt Économique) Sahanala, which brings together within the same platform producers engaged in organic farming, private operators concerned about the environment and fair trade and associations convinced by their participatory conservation approach. In addition, the customer who buys Malagasy vanilla from GIE, wants to offset its carbon emissions, by directly financing the implementation of carbon projects in the NAP of his partner Fanamby.

Specific objectives

  • Analyze the activities of communities living on the outskirts of the NAP and the impact of NAP and GIE activities on these activities to evaluate ex-ante the effectiveness of the carbon project
  • Carry out the feasibility study of the carbon certification following the methodological framework of the client and participate in the training of the team for the implementation of the project
