Ethiopia

Ethiopia

Ethiopia is a large country in East Africa, twice the size of France. Over the past 40 years, forest cover has rapidly reduced. Without trees to keep the soil fertile, the land is losing its fertility. This is making it harder for people to grow enough food. As a result, almost a third of the population is living in extreme poverty.  

Tree Aid has been working with communities since 1991, to tackle hunger, poverty, and the effects of the climate crisis.

The Great Green Wall

Tree Aid is working with communities across Africa to grow trees and restore land in support of the Great Green Wall movement. This African-led initiative envisages an 8,000km mosaic of restored land across the Sahel that will transform the lives of millions living on the frontline of the climate crisis.
