Ecosystem Restoration

Ecosystem restoration means assisting in the recovery of ecosystems that have been degraded or destroyed, as well as conserving the ecosystems that are still intact. Healthier ecosystems, with richer biodiversity, yield greater benefits such as more fertile soils, bigger yields of timber and fish, and larger stores of greenhouse gases. Afopa is working with Ohaji Communities to plant 1000s of trees on farm lands to generate employment for the young people and promote awareness of greener and safer environments.
