News from Burkina Faso

Since 2007, Tree Aid has been working with communities across Burkina Faso to manage, protect, and use forests, known as our forest governance programme.

Following the success of phase one, in 2019 we rolled out our work into more communities across the country.

So far on this project, there have been 609,021 trees planted, 138 new enterprise groups created to collect, transform and sell tree products, and many more achievements.

Some of the ingenious solutions include grass briquettes, vetiver grass planting, and mud walls.
