PROTECTING FORESTS TO STOP DESERTIFICATION

Ethiopie

Titre : PROTECTING FORESTS TO STOP DESERTIFICATION

Pays  : Ethiopie

Date/Durée : Dec 2021 // Dec 2024

Projet ID : ETH 1192-20

Description
A forest in northern Ethiopia prevents the Sahara from spreading southwards, but this barrier is being eroded by destructive exploitation and extreme climate events. Welthungerhilfe is helping to protect the forest by providing both professional training to authorities and practical support to the public. For example, solar power can replace firewood for cooking. In addition, afforestation is more successful when trees with commercial uses are planted or when there are alternative sources of income available, such as beekeeping or raising poultry.

Institutional donors  : Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung (BMZ)

Project Budget 2022 : € 372,166
Overall project budget : € 1,295,878

Présentation : Welthungerhilfe
