Magwi County Tree Nurseries Project
People in Magwi County are very poor and 99% of them live in rural areas. Wood is a part of life, and also there is pressure to clear forests for agriculture. The current way of life is not sustainable. Wood is always treated as a free resource, and vast areas of woodland have been cleared carelessly without replanting for future generations. This deforestation also leads to soil erosion, land degradation and ultimately climate change which is and will have a devastating effect. This project sets up 130 nurseries.
