Launching of NABU's 'Forests for Future' project

Today, the big opening of a 3-day launching event for NABU‚Äôs project ‚ÄėForests for Future: Developing forest landscapes for livelihoods and climate adaptation in Southwest Ethiopia‚Äô took place in Bonga at the Kafa Biosphere Reserve, with about 80 actors who play a role in the conservation and preservation of forests in Southwest Ethiopia.

Throughout the event multiple stakeholders will be informed about the project implementers (NABU and EWNRA), the project itself, the current status of Southwest Ethiopia’s forests and how to take measures for preserving them. Their capacities for taking action within fields like FLR or sustainable income generation will be increased and a platform for exchange and joint action, the Southwest Forest Alliance, will be established.

With having talks from several experts and giving time for exchange, the first day could already raise the participants’ awareness for the need of preserving forest landscapes and therefore was a great success.
