Water and Climate Change

Forest, Soils, Water and Climate Change

The continuous felling of forest for agriculture has left the landscape susceptible to soil erosion, landslides and the depletion of watersheds. Restoration of forest cover therefore becomes imperative. Through this program, MfoFou works with communities to:

  • Improve the living standards of the small holder farmers by increased tree planting on farms and along watersheds.
  • Develop and provide strategies based on field practicalities that will build the capacity of local communities and institutions to manage forest, soils and watersheds in a changing climate.
  • Strategize climate change adaption and mitigation options with communities to a large extent.
  • Restore degraded lands through beneficial tree planting
  • Work towards the protection of fragile ecosystems such as Bamendankwe hills.
