ABOUT JUSTDIGGIT

Justdiggit (www.justdiggit.org) is a non-profit organisation working on landscape restoration in Africa to make a positive climate impact. We believe in the power of nature and that together, we can cool down the planet. So far, we’ve re-greened over 60,000 hectares and brought back over 9 million trees in Kenya and Tanzania but we’re not done yet!

Justdiggit is partnering with GIZ to help introduce and scale Forest Landscape restoration (FLR) practices in Togo, Madagascar & Ethiopia. Justdiggit will support the local implementing team in executing diverse communication approaches to help to scale the impact of the program. The Forests4Future project focuses on the restoration and governance of forests and tree-rich, productive landscapes in Ethiopia, Madagascar, and Togo.

In Prefectur Tchamba, The Forests4Future program works on restoring and protecting Forest and tree-richnlandscapes, promoting agroforestry practices, and value chain programs such as tree nurseries, Production of Shea butter and bee keeping increasing the income of Women and young people.

By implementing a diverse range of reforestation measures, we aim to restore an area of 2,000 hectares in Togo, Madagascar & Ethiopia. Bringing back trees reduces soil erosion and positively impacts biodiversity, water availability and land productivity. It is estimated the income from the restored areas will increase by an average of 10% for the 1,700 households living in the project regions. The Forests4Future project specifically aims to empower local communities with a special focus on young people and women. To keep the restored forests green and healthy and protect existing forestry areas, the project also aims to improve the governance of forests in the three countries.
