In just one decade, the Koulikoro region of Mali lost 86% of its forests, most of which were cut down to make room for farms — this is known as deforestation. Many people living here rely on the forests for food and income, but with more trees being lost, this isn't easy.
On top of this, the climate crisis is making the environment hotter and rainfall more unpredictable. As a result, people struggle to grow enough crops to eat or sell.
This project is funded by the Turing Foundation. We are working with a local partner, The Association for the Development of Promotion and Training Activities (ADAF/Gallé) to implement this project.
