"It's possible to rehabilitate large-scale damaged ecosystems" - John D. Liu

The restoration of degraded landscapes can deliver financial, social and natural benefits:
  • realizing long-term profit;
  • reduce rural poverty;
  • bringing jobs;
  • increase business activity, education and security;
  • improve soil fertility;
  • solve the household energy crisis;
  • provide materials for construction;
  • improve food security;
  • produce nutritious fodder;
  • reduce erosion;
  • reduces soil surface temperatures and evapotranspiration;  
  • contribute to biodiversity;
  • mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon.

Our pragmatic approach:

  1. identify and analyze existing restring successes;
  2. build and mobilize partner organizations;
  3. address policy and legal issues and improve enabling conditions for regreening;
  4. develop and implement a communication strategy;
  5. develop or strengthen agroforestry value chains;
  6. expand research activities.
