Association ADIDY Maitso was established in 2005 with the aim of protecting the natural resources of the Ankeniheny Zahamena forest corridor along the east coast of Madagascar. The association’s main objectives include managing and restoring a forest corridor containing 80 percent of the planet’s diversified species, educating the local community on the economic benefits of biodiversity conservation, and providing training to local farmers and women’s self-help groups on agricultural and income diversification.

In 2010, ADIDY Maitso won the Equator Prize which is awarded biennially to recognize outstanding community efforts to reduce poverty through the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. This video was created as part of our Biodiversity for Local Livelihoods project.
