Teams interested in participating in the NaPO Conservation Cup will register with the organising committee, providing information on their players, coach, and designated restoration sites and actions.
Registered teams receive training on ecosystem restoration techniques, including tree growing, Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR), and other restoration practices, through a series of workshops and field demonstrations.
The tournament is organised in a league format, with teams playing against each other in a round-robin format. Points and awards are awarded based on the team's performance on the field as well as their restoration efforts, including the number of trees planted, the survival rate of the trees, and the use of sustainable restoration techniques.
After the tournament, teams will continue to take care of the trees planted in the previous year, including watering, pruning, and protection from threats. Teams are required to submit regular reports on the status of the trees and their restoration efforts to NaPO for monitoring and evaluation. The NaPO team will conduct regular field visits to verify the tree growing efforts and provide technical support to the teams throughout the year
