Association Adidy Maitso (Adidy Maitso Association)

L’Association Adidy Maitso (Adidy Maitso Association) was established in 2005 with the aim of conserving the natural resources of Didy Forest – a dense moist forest of medium altitude in the Alaotra Mangoro region of eastern Madagascar. The forest lies within the Ankeniheny-Zahamena Corridor, which is renowned for its high species endemism and unique biodiversity. The Association works through 16 local community associations to manage and restore the forest corridor, educate local communities on the economic benefits of biodiversity conservation, and provide training to local farmers and women's groups on agricultural and income diversification.

The group is actively engaged in maintaining an indigenous tree nursery, patrolling and surveying local forests to regulate against unsustainable forest use, radio programming, training on improved agricultural practices for greater crop yields, and running a demonstration and training centre for local farmers.
