STRATEGY

CEDEP believes on using the participatory approach to identify problems, provide solutions, monitor and follow up of activities. We also:

- Provide free advice to farmer groups and individuals in the villages by visiting them on meeting days and sometimes subsidies cost of seeds for those wishing to grow organic vegetables.

- Set up a Mushroom research and spawn production unit to foster mushroom production in the community to ensure all year availability of mushrooms which is a seasonal resource.

- Train individual households on mushroom cultivation as well as provide immediate market to households engaged in wild mushroom harvesting. By this, a network of mushroom growers will be established in the villages.

- With the use of GIS, the Tubah Forest Reserve which have very limited data will be mapped and geo-referenced, flora and fauna inventory done, carbon stock measured and a 5 years conservation management plan design.

- We also Incorporate GIS in all feasibility studies related to agriculture, forestry, conservation, fishery and socioeconomics by consulting to interested organisations and or institutions.

- Build Partnership with community groups, Councils and other organizations.
