This initiative aims to rehabilitate 10,000 hectares of degraded land in the Amhara region of Ethiopia by introducing 11.9 million trees, using planting, assisted natural regeneration, and conservation techniques in collaboration with The Hunger Project.
The project is committed to empowering women in communities where they traditionally had limited leadership opportunities. Additionally, maternal and child health in the area will be improved through increased access to Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH).
As part of the Gewocha Forest project, the local communities will receive support in obtaining title deeds for the forest to ensure its long-term protection.
Around 7,894 farmers and their families residing in the 14 communities will directly benefit from the project, with approximately 42,000 individuals receiving indirect benefits.
Tanzania is facing significant threats to its natural resources, with only one-third of its environment being officially protected.
In recent decades, agricultural expansion and urbanization have caused the loss of at least one-third of the country's ecosystems and biodiversity hosted within forests and wooded areas.
TREES' projects implement the Forest Garden Approach, a method for training farmers to plant thousands of trees that safeguard their land, replenish soil nutrients, and enhance the size and quality of crop yields.
Introducing trees into the Forest Gardens rejuvenates the local landscape, and new business and market opportunities are created for farmers, allowing them to diversify their income and become more resilient to climate change.
The Iringa Forest Garden project will span two years, from May 2022 to December 2023, and involve around 600 local farmers, resulting in the planting of over 1.8 million trees.
In recent years, vast tracts of Madagascar's original forests have been destroyed, uprooting entire animal species and disrupting the ability of local communities to farm and inhabit the land.
The loss of whole mangrove estuaries has also occurred, leaving exposed earth vulnerable to erosion and contributing to soil loss into the sea. These mangrove forests play a critical role as carbon sinks and provide habitats for diverse marine species that thrive in shallow waters while offering vital coastal protection against floods and storms.
The efforts to restore mangroves in Madagascar target parcels of coastal land situated to the North West of the island, near Mahajanga. Although the restoration area is broader, the planting partners have funded mangrove planting across approximately 600 hectares of the degraded coastal region.
Mangroves are a species of small, coastal trees that exist throughout the tropics and subtropics, with a remarkable capacity to absorb carbon and store it in their vast root systems beneath the ground. Mangrove forests are regarded as a blue carbon ecosystem, as they store carbon on coastal regions. In addition to their outstanding carbon sequestration potential, mangroves are vital for offering coastal protection against floods and storms in the area they inhabit.
// PLANTING PARTNERS
Trees are planted around the world through various planting partners including Eden Reforestation Projects and Trees For The Future via our partners, Ecologi
Eden Reforestation Projects
Eden Reforestation Projects partners with local communities to restore forests on a massive scale, generating employment, safeguarding ecosystems, and mitigating climate change.
WeForest reforestation initiatives collaborate with governments, local organisations, and communities to revive endangered forests and landscapes in tropical areas and biodiversity hotspots.
Trees For The Future
Trees for the Future (TREES) provides training to communities on sustainable land use practices, enabling them to develop robust economies, flourishing food systems, and a healthier planet.
