Like most of K'ho[i] people living in Preteng village, about 80 kilometers west of Da Lat city, K'Sau is people of the forest.
In the first 30 years of his life, he depends on the forests, largely to meet the need for fuel, water and food etc. K'Sau now knows that he will continue to make his family’s living out of forestry sources but in a different way.
K’Sau recently learnt about environmental values of the forests. Being involved in a United Nations pilot forestry development program on green house gas emission reduction, he becomes aware of the importance of the carbon stored in the forests and the benefits he will reap from preserving the forest for carbon credits.
