Project that restores over 13,000 hectares of degraded land launched

A five-year project that restores over 13,000 hectares of degraded land in selected watersheds of Amhara, Oromia and Sidama regions was launched.
Restoration of the degraded lands will focus on the Blue Nile basin to avert forest degradation and gradually reduce over-flooding and sedimentation, it was learned.
The project, which is expected to restore and conserve degraded lands that improve the livelihood of climate change vulnerable people and communities, would be implemented at the grassroots levels.
Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) Country Director, Lee Buyunghwa said Ethiopia’s 10 year development plan reaffirms the significance of climate resilient green economy, forest protection and development actions.
He added that the program is agreed in accordance with the strategic actions of the Ethiopian government for realizing climate resilient green economy.
Buyunghwa said, “I believe this program will be able to deliver its intended results by taking advantage of GGGI’s commitment to strong, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth and expertise that the organization possesses and capitalizes on for global intervention in many countries.”
During the launching of the project, Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) Country Representative, Gemedo Dalle said many families in Ethiopia are dependent on the forest sector which contributes about 6 percent of GDP to the national economy.
