TKI, the company that pipes water for industrial and domestic use, is helping fund conservation activities and compensate community efforts to maintain good forest cover on a pilot site.

A more formal environmental science management body will likely be formed to to administer the growing program - additional farmers groups have expressed willingness to join and other government and private companies have indicated a willingness to pay for similar environmental services.
