Sustainable development in Masoala / Madagascar

  1. 1. Key questions:1. Why is it so important to protect the environment in Madagascar? – perhaps even more so than UK etc.2. Why it is important to have sustainable development not just conservation? (why do the locals need to make money / get food from the land?)3. Why would enforcing conservation be almost impossible in Masoala?4. HOW can Madagascar ‘do’ sustainable development – and for each thing, what makes it sustainable? [economically, socially AND environmentally]5. Which would you do and why?
  2. 2. The most important areas forbiological diversity were those thatwere also least accessible. Theseareas were included within thepark, where no-one is allowed toharm the trees or animals. Localpark rangers were employed totry and ensure that this happened.The accessible areas were notincluded in the park,encouraging sustainabledevelopment by allowing localsto harvest timber and otherforest products.
