Reforestation in Mozambique

Mozambique is home to a vast diversity of species and varying landscapes, where forests play a central role in society, environment, and economy. However, more than 8 million hectares of forest (over 30,000 square miles) have been destroyed. Hurricanes, floods, tree felling for firewood and charcoal, clearing of large areas for agricultural land, and commercial forestry are the main causes of deforestation in Mozambique.

Our local partner plants indigenous tree species at 62 different sites in Mozambique. Their reforestation program in Mozambique helps to protect coastal communities from environmental disasters, improve fishing, remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and increase diversity.

At the same time, tree planting creates jobs in a country where nearly half (around 45%) live below the extreme poverty line.
