The impact of deforestation

In Africa, 94% of rural households cook over an open fire. Local communities use wood from forests to meet their needs. The amount of firewood consumption leads to deforestation and has an impact on climate change.

On a local level, deforestation means that the soil loses its ability to retain water, which causes erosion. This has a negative effect on agriculture. On a global level, it decreases the number of trees able to store CO2

We provide three efficient solutions to solve the issue concerning deforestation:

Cookstoves

Tree Farming

Forest Regeneration
