Trillion Trees

Trillion Trees is an unprecedented collaboration between three of the world’s largest conservation organisations – WWF, BirdLife International, and the Wildlife Conservation Society – to help end deforestation and restore tree cover. Our partnership is founded on our commitment to a shared vision, and the belief that working together we can achieve more than we can individually.

Tree cover is an essential part of what makes Earth a healthy and prosperous home for people and wildlife, but the global stock has fallen – and continues to fall – dramatically. In fact, we are still losing 10 billion trees per year.

The consequences? More carbon emitted and less absorbed, dwindling freshwater stores, altered rainfall patterns, fewer nutrients to enrich soils, weakened resilience to extreme events and climate change, shrinking habitat for wildlife and other biodiversity, insufficient wood supply to meet rising demand, harsher local climates, and harder lives for more than one billion forest-dependent peoples across the world.

It doesn’t have to be this way. The two key steps that will reverse these trends – keeping existing trees standing, and restoring trees to the places they once grew – are within our capabilities.

Restoration of indigenous forests, Manica Province

Set up by a team of experienced development professionals, MICAIA`s goal is local prosperity in a sustainable world. In practise at community level, this means that MICAIA works to enable local people to prosper in strong, diverse local economies and healthy, vibrant communities.

This project will work with communities in two parts of Manica Province, Darue/Zinguena and Chicamba within the Moribane forest. This covers 120 square kms and is a forest reserve established to include the highlands of the Chimanimani Mountains that are shared by Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

There are three areas of proposed activity. Community mobilization, training and learning; establishment of seedling nurseries ultimately using locally sourced indigenous fruit and other trees; tree-planting and seedling management.

The main objective is to restore depleted indigenous forests in Manica Province, providing increased tree cover on family plots and in depleted forest areas, protecting vulnerable forest areas and increasing local knowledge of indigenous trees and their uses.
