Center for Propagation of indigenous trees and bio-diversity development


Objectives:

  • Propagation of indigenous trees as corner stone to protect the soil against erosion and re-gaining the former bio-diversity.
  • Agro-Forestry thanks to usage of special indigenous species by the farmers (including farmer education).
  • Develop and maintain long-term water and nutrition resources.

 

Actions:

 

The foundation works in close collaboration with Addis Ababa University (Professor Legesse who is initiator and main sponsor). Activities include:

  • Financial support to set up a tree nursery in which 250'000 indigenous tree seedlings will be produced per year (realized 2005).
  • Education of forestry experts about agro-forestry benefits of indigenous trees and their development and deployment in the respective areas.
  • Model Center to document the importance of indigenous trees and the necessity for re-forestry in Ethiopia.
