Les

In efforts to decrease deforestation, land erosion, forest fires and water shortage issues in Les village while increasing environmental conservation and disaster risk awareness of the community, IDEP currently runs a program of revegetating the forest with productive trees.

Understanding the economic and medicinal value of cultivating honeybee farms, IDEP provides training to the local farmers to support them in this alternative livelihood initiative. Environmental conservation education is also conducted in the schools around Les to instill knowledge on forestry and water conservation to the younger generations. So far, 2000 Longan trees have been planted in the deforested areas of Les, with great success of local environmental groups and schools participating in this venture.
