Challenge

Growing trees on degraded farmlands is a major need in order to restore soil fertility, increase and diversify productivity, reduce pressure on natural ecosystems and mitigate climate change. To do so, local people need to have access to tree seeds and get training on reforestation and agroforestry, which includes setting up nurseries and taking care of trees. Direct beneficiaries are poor rural farmers in Cameroon.

Solution

The New Forests Project will work with two partner organizations that in the course of one year will train 3000 people in reforestation and agroforestry, receive 120 kilograms of tree seeds to distribute among farmers and establish 50 tree nurseries

Long-Term Impact

Long-term impacts include the conversion of 6000 hectares of degraded land to productive agroforestry farms and the restoration of 700 forest hectares. Poor farmers will increase their income and food supply. Pressure on natural forests will diminish
