The local projects
Forest and biodiversity conservation projects
Madagascar is a historical country of intervention for Planète Urgence, with an activity that began in 2010.
The association supports the implementation of 2 projects for the preservation of forests and biodiversity on the Big Island, a true birthplace of primary endemic forests and home to 80% of the world’s land biodiversity.
The TAPIA project is the first project on the island: it aims to preserve the endemic and primary tapia forest by reducing human pressure on it and to support local economic development, particularly through the wild silkworm industry. Environmental awareness is also integrated into this global project, in order to involve all stakeholders (community members, children, inhabitants of the intervention zone, etc.) and ensure the sustainability of the actions.
The DIABE project was launched in 2020, is co-financed by the European Union and implemented with five other local partners. It aims to develop the wood-energy sector in order to meet the wood needs of communities while preserving fragile primary forests.
Projet TAPIA | Preservation of the tapia forest, wild silk and beekeeping in Madagascar.Restore the ecosystem through the reforestation of tapia, an endemic tree severely impacted by human actions.
Projet DIABE | Integrated Development, Planning and Wood-EnergyAs part of the Support Program for Agriculture Financing and Inclusive Sectors in Central Madagascar (AFAFI Center) carried by Madagascar with support from the EU.
The volunteering in Madagascar
Planète Urgence consolidates the projects carried out by local partners. The association’s action responds to the needs and accompanies the autonomy of the partners. Planète Urgence’s Madagascan national delegation thus identifies the needs of partners, which allows for a relationship based on proximity and trust.
In order to be effective, the missions are prepared beforehand, supervised on site and evaluated on the return of the volunteers. The process of analysis and evaluation of the quality and relevance of the missions is carried out in real time and allows for the capitalisation of good practices as well as the consideration of areas for improvement if necessary.
Since 2000, more than 10,000 volunteers have left for all the countries where the association is active. Get involved in capacity building!
