Greening the Green Wall Initiative, Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso

Titre : Greening the Green Wall Initiative, Burkina Faso

Pays /Région : Burkina Faso
Localisation : Lake Higa

Durée : 2016-2017

The focus of most of the work of the Netherlands Society for the Protection of Birds (VBN) is in the Netherlands and in countries along ’Dutch’ migratory birds’ routes, which includes Burkina Faso. Since 2005 VBN has been working in the country with the national nature conservation organisation Naturama to protect bird habitats and improving the livelihoods of people in local communities. _Naturama is working with small local nature conservation organisations to restore the natural environment around Lake Higa using natural restoration techniques and teaching local communities sustainable land use techniques which increase their income. Naturama is also improving national nature conservation plans and the implementation of the ’Green Wall’ initiative by sharing its knowledge of and experience with the best tree species. This ensures that ecosystems are protected more effectively in the long term.

Financement : The Turing Foundation is donating € 50,000 to this project (about 50% of the total budget for 2016 and 2017).
