PAGE 2 Programme in Madagascar to take up work in July

2020-06/ Despite the current COVID-19 impediments and some operational postponements that also affect work at our headquarters ECO Consult's activities for the new bilateral PAGE II Programme in Madagascar are starting as scheduled. From July on the local team will work at a professionalization of the construction timber value chain in and around protected areas, elaborate a market information system and a digital tracking system for green charcoal, further develop the wood energy sector's M&S system, support individual community afforestation schemes and promote energy efficient kilns and improved stoves. The interventions in three regions, which are co-financed by EC, are important steps to reduce deforestation and combat poverty.
