The PIMP members are also expected to deliver approaches and guidance to communities to obtain alternative livelihoods. They also persuade the local communities to prevent hunting activities of the protected wild animals as an effort to protect the endemic biodiversity of Sulawesi in BNWNP. As a part to support the performance of the PIMP personnel in the field, the CIWT Project supported a 9-day training aimed to increase their capacity and knowledge.
