International policies award a central role to participation by local populations in sustainable development issues. The development operators representing global undertakings must ensure true participation by the stakeholders working at the local scale. The FOREAIM project is aimed at limiting degradation and enhancing the restoration of ecosystems for local populations and with their participation. M this framework, the present study is based on the perceptions of forest of the different stakeholders in order to develop restoration strategies. The work was conducted in three villages in the Ankeniheny Zahamena forest corridor on the east coast of Madagascar. It is based on the analysis of the opinions of the various stakeholders to understand their perception of forest and forest degradation. The different perceptions and the solutions put forward for remedying degradation are then used to develop restoration strategies.
