The Projet D’Analalava tries to protect about 120 hectares rain forest at the coast. Analalava is a small village on the east coast of Madagascar, south of the „vanillametropole“ Antalaha. Considering ecological and social aspects special projects are realized to create a basis to live and work. The next aim is to ensure self-sufficiency in food.
Another aim is ecological tourism. So the project offers a three room accommodation to tourists who want to spend an ecological holiday in this village.
The main activities are the protection of the environment and a small beginning of green tourism. The next aim is to open a school in the “outback”. The activities concentrate on the establishing of the curriculum and to obtain the relevant permissions from the state.
The Austrian Service Abroad is active at the Projet D'Analalava since 2008.
