Pre-inventory Meeting

Flickr Slideshow of the Thon 4 Meeting

Yesterday we travelled to Thon 4 (village 4) to meet with the villagers and start the forest inventory process. I took a lot of pictures and you can follow the meeting with the slideshow above.

Unfortunately, the farmers were not available for the dates we hoped to do the inventory since they are busy harvesting their crops from the fields.  There seemed to be some political element to this since the local government representative was particularly adamant that if there was any future hardship related to this crop cycle then the political party might take the blame.  When the ethnic minorities are concerned politics becomes an even greater influence over action.
