Expected result:
  • Supply of sustainable fuel wood from these plantations will reduce pressure on natural forests.
  1. Increase awareness of, and educate, people at different levels on sustainable use of all types of energy;
  2. Identify (in the sites where WWF works) potential zones suitable for reforestation activities (to provide fuelwood for cities);
  3. Together with the State Departments involved (Environment, Forests and Tourism, Energy and Mines), develop a reforestation plan;
  4. Train model farmers to establish and maintain tree nurseries;
  5. Develop and implement a management plan for the reforestation schemes (ie. forests where reforestation activities take place);
  6. Participate in regional, national and international events on reforestation for energy.
