Sustainable Forest and watershed Resources Management Project
A project that aims to manage forest and watershed resources in a sustainable way. This means that the project will take into account the needs of both the present and future generations, and will ensure that the resources are used in a way that does not damage the environment or the people who depend on them.
There are many different types of sustainable forest and watershed resources management projects. Some projects focus on reforestation, while others focus on watershed restoration. Some projects focus on education and outreach, while others focus on policy and advocacy.
No matter what type of project it is, all sustainable forest and watershed resources management projects share the same goal: to ensure that these important resources are managed in a way that benefits everyone
