YKAN supports the empowerment of village communities, whose lives depend on forest and lands, to protect and manage forest natural resources sustainably for their welfare and prosperity.
Social Forestry Program
YKAN supports the government’s Social Forestry program in giving rights to access and manage forest areas to the community groups.
