Project site lies within Elabered –Subregion of Ansbeba Administrative Region, which is about 20 Km east of Keren town, the capital of the Region.The main environmental problems in Elabered Sub-region are human induced activities of deforestation to expand agricultural land, selling of forest products to subsidize household income and limited efforts to regenerate/plant trees while cutting for many other purposes. The principal source of energy of the residents is firewood.Livelihood of the population depends on rain-fed agriculture, rearing of livestock and petty trading.
