This report was meant to be our year-end edition with 131K new trees planted in 2024 and total 1.73 million new trees planted till date alongwith our partners. We are not done yet - there'd be another interim report published in December or January, thanks to continous and generous support flowing to this project.
This edition of our report highlights 4 Global Goals 'IAHV Cimate Action' serves and illustrates our renewed focus in planting 100% mangroves going forward. There's a spotlight on our strategic partner Bamboovement, HQ in The Netherlands.
Finally, don't miss out the beautiful pictures of villagers employed in the Reforestation sites and three positive news items on Climate Change - one each from Kenya, Abu Dhabi and the Pacific island of Tuvalu.
Mar-Jul 2023, 32K new trees, Climate/COP28 updates
By Shailen Mittal | PROJECT LEADER
Whilst climate records tumbled this summer, we planted 32,435 new trees. Read the latest science on why more new trees need to be planted, what is happening with Amazon Oil, Reforestation in the Tropical nations and How COP28 is shaping up, as pressure grows on governments and banks like J.P. Morgan Chase, Citibank et al.
There is also an interesting appeal by the BY Times to out down that burger - so what does this tough argument look like?
There's a cool video on How Plants cool the Planet, by Jimmy Sol; and plenty of pictures from our ground partner Eden Reforestation Project, who are working day and night across 10+ nation sistes.
Feel free to get in touch, as exciting new projects take shape including a technology enabled plant-based cookbook with contributions from celebraties around the world.
Please find enclosed our progress and activity report of the last 5 months. An interesting collaboration with Rotary London District is building up besides exploration of innovative methods to cool the climate chaos. Project leaders and key partners also got an opportunity to discuss progress and plans directly with IAHV co-founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. In this report, you'll also see IPCC's latest on climate science and how the reforestation is changing lives in the communities it dirctly engages with. To mention a few other highlights - women make up 50% of the workforce, innovative methods being explored for transplantaion of saplings in Madagascar and Mozambique, and the importance of and expertise around seed collection in the restoration process in Brazilian sites.
