Project implemented by the ministry in charge of environment. Officially prohibited activities: logging, charring, bushfires, animal grazing and gold panning
Prohibited activity: gold panning resulting in deforestation and degradation through the use of chemicals and the digging of holes
Prohibited activity: animal grazing. A flock of sheep grazing
Prohibited activity: bushfires. Tree burned by bush fires
Activity authorized Sale of wood energy to supply the cities of Koudougou (25 km) and Ouagadougou (125 km)
Permitted activity: non-timber forest products. Women are the most active in the activity of picking and selling
