A tree species with multiple benefits for the restoration of South African ecosystems

In the Eastern Cape, South Africa, land desertification is caused by the increasing pressure of livestock on grazing land. Today, the depletion of vegetation cover and the degradation of the land of local farmers and surrounding reserves are causing many adverse environmental effects, such as the depletion of water resources, biodiversity erosion and soil erosion. In this context, Reforest'Action is partnering with C4 EcoSolutions and AfriCarbon, two South African companies, to restore these ecosystems by planting 500,000 trees of a local species essential to the ecological functioning of the region.

Australia: a farming community committed to creating a food forest

Located in the Northern Rivers region of the Australian state of New South Wales, the new Reforest'Action-funded project in Australia aims to create a food forest on abandoned pastureland. Led on the ground by the next generation of a farming community, embodied by our partner Permaculture Design Action, the project will develop biodiversity and strengthen intergenerational social ties within a local farming community. The ambition is to eventually create a successful example of agroecology, in the hope of inspiring young people who own land to replicate similar projects.
