The project's core element is the afforestation of an area that lies fallow and is exposed to erosion and desertification. During afforestation, a mixed forest of exclusively indigenous tree species will be planted on a surface of 1,000 ha in a nature conservation zone. This enables the creation of a self-regulating ecosystem.
Under the auspices of the natureOffice GmbH, the non-profit organization AVES Togo - which has a longstanding experience in developing environmental protection projects - will provide support in realizing the project locally.
