PEOPLE AND FOREST:
Local community used the forest in particular flora for a number of different purposes such as a source for medicine, cultural and spiritual uses, economic activities like making boats, clothing, carving etc. For example the bark of Antiaris toxicaria produced bright cloth for use by men while the bark of Lannea welwitschii produced brown cloth which was favored by women.

The forest is thus not only ecologically valuable but is also a strong part of cultural heritage with deeply intrinsic ethno-ecological values which have been respected and maintained throughout generations producing the valuable but vulnerable forest that we have today.
