With relevant data, it mainly presents local deforestation causes, which are heavy firewood collection by villagers themselves and neighbouring villagers, and lack of knowledge to plant trees in the rainy season. The participants find out about man-made deforestation—shifting cultivation, firewood collection, wood-hunting and orchid-hunting – and its consequences in the area. They know how to do some protection procedures and rules by individual and village autonomy as a whole.

Webula Organization for Rural Development (WORD), now it changes its name to "Taungthan Thu", implements Seedlings Cottage Project for Upland Farmers, Webula Town, Falam Township, Chin State. Many villages are facing a decrease in the crop yield of their farmlands. The community is aware that shifting farming cannot feed the family enough food for a yearlong. They want to move to permanent farming with long-term plantations from the shifting cultivation. This project is a great support for the upland farmers in many ways by providing the required seedlings of perennial crops. They will maintain coffee, grape and other long-term plant seedlings by setting up a Multipurpose Nursery House. It has built (40'x30') wide the seedlings cottage. Now it starts serving coffee seedlings to local farmers and some more seedlings are coming soon.

Green Kennedy Group (GKG) implements the "Protection of Cherry and Rhododendron trees" project in Tedim Township, Chan State. As they made advocate with posters, and vinyl on trees, with social media and in villages, passers-by become aware and avoid cutting Cherry and Rhododendron trees around the Kennedy Hill area. We could see fewer and fewer taking pictures with a branch of Rhododendron flowers on Facebook after the project activities.

Good Practice of Agriculture training of GKG in Pinpih Village, Tedim Township, gave the local farmer knowledge and skills on how to make value-added products, the proper usage technique of chemical pesticides, perseveration and protection of the soil and making organic fertilizer. Cultivation of Cash Crops and adding value to their products remain a big challenge for lack of proper knowledge, risk-taking and difficulty of market assessment.
