The PMO and the project team will likewise visit the project site in UluTampik, Lentang Forest Reserve, Bentong, Pahang to have a dialogue with the members of the newly establishedTampikJanda Baik Eco-Forest Committee regarding their project implementation plans.

The M&E is one of the important activities of the ASRF, which serves as an opportunity for the PMO to meet the project implementers, observe the on-site project activities, and interact with project stakeholders. It also serves as a learning exchange between the ASRF PMO and the grantees. The lessons and recommendations gained from this activity are of utmost relevance to the ASRF Sustainability Plan. (Xyrus Godfrey B. Capiña)
