Tree Growing to Save the Planet

by Asset-Based Community Development with Equity Foundation
Tree Growing to Save the Planet

Summary

We will engage upland farming communities to plant and take care of trees as a means to combat climate change and to save the planet. Tree growing has taken secondary focus among farmers as the need for food and income remains paramount during times of scarcity but the need to inform, educate and provide tree growing inputs to the vast majority is urgent amidst the problems caused by changing climate.

Challenge

Changes in the climate is real and terrifying. Warmer climate coupled with stronger storms and earthquakes is frequently happening. The need to counter this by the planting of trees is of urgent importance and most often overlooked due to the frantic search for food by villagers. We will advocate and promote the growing of trees for their economic value as well as for their positive impact to the environment.

Solution

Trees will sequester carbon as well as will provide multiple benefits to the farmer and to the whole community. Benefits include food, fodder, shade, control of soil erosion, availability of timber, and so many more.

Long-Term Impact

The health of our planet is very important as global warming and climate change is real and is destructive to lives, properties and general welfare of the people not only those living in the villages but also those in the lowland areas. Promoting to farmers the love of the planet is essential for our long-term survival.
