Fight against the silting of rice fields in the Lake Alaotra region:

  • Stabilization works of 6 large lavaka executed in 2 phases
  • Supervision of the local population for the execution of the works
  • Awareness raising and technology transfer so that the local population can carry out other small-scale protection work, and also to prevent the harmful actions that cause lavaka.
  • Creation of an association to monitor the actions
