The project is being implemented in partnership with local farmers and several Indonesian groups. The ultimate aim of the project is to reduce encroachment on the natural resources of the surrounding National Park, both terrestrial and marine. These resources are of primary importance both ecologically and economically to the district of Buleleng. They are the main attraction to visitors who come to the area.
