ECOFAC program
1992 - 2010

One of the major achievements of the ECOFAC program has been the establishment of Village Hunting Areas (VHAs). The VHAs are portions of the national territory dedicated to sport hunting operations; their management is officially entrusted by the State to local village communities. They rent them to private hunting companies, which operate them according to specifications and in respect of specific harvest quotas granted by the State.

The funds generated by the taxes and use fees are, apart from the share reserved for the State and the Communes, managed democratically and autonomously by village structures.
