    The project's objective is also to improve the living conditions of the local population by giving them direct responsibility for managing forests and natural resources —as much inside as outside the protected areas— by promoting and developing sustainable agricultural practices and by generating additional revenue for the people.

    Breathing new life into ebony | Sebastian Chuwa - African Blackwood Conservation Project

    view more

    In Tanzania, Sebastian Chuwa has devoted his life to breathing life back into the M’pingo tree, a local ebony tree that the local population has been massively cutting down for 20 years. It used to abound in all Africa’s dry savannah but now there are only less than 3 million of them. Most of these are in Tanzania and Mozambique. Thanks to Sebastian Chuwa's action, over a million trees have been replanted and he has convinced the local craftsmen to replant more trees than they cut. In 2004 alone, 30 000 trees were planted. This is a major success as 20 000 odd M’pingo trees are cut down every year for commercial purposes and it takes this tree between 70 and 100 years to mature.

In about twenty years, thanks to a solid tree network, more than 20 million trees have been planted in Kenya thus curbing desertification there.

    $30 million debt written off to protect forests | Governments

    view more

    An article in the Wall Street Journal on July 1, 2009, explained that the United States had agreed to write off $30 million in debt owed by Indonesia. In exchange, Indonesia must protect Sumatra's forests. Indonesia will therefore have to spend the same amount in the form of subsidies for the conservation of 13 endangered Sumatran forests. An extra 1 million dollars of aid will be provided by Conservation International, an American organisation for the protection of nature. "It is a huge encouragement for Sumatra's population and wildlife" , declared Jatna Supriatna, the vice-president of Conservation International Indonesia, "which reflects the United States' provisional policy". It is the biggest exchange for a debt write-off that the American government has ever organised. Sumatra is an island on which there are many threatened species such as white rhinoceros, orang-utans and tigers, etc. With its high deforestation rate, Indonesia is the third biggest greenhouse gas emitter after the united States and China.

    "A Forest Protection Agreement between Guyana and Norway – On Monday 16 November, Norway signed an agreement with Guyana for it not to cut its trees, in exchange for 250 million dollars by 2015. To start with, Guyana will receive 30 million dollars. It will receive the rest if the project manages to avoid deforestation, explained an article published on the 17 November on the WorldWatch Institute website. For years, the Guyanese authorities have been trying to obtain funding to fight deforestation and thus reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The money given by Norway is similar to the REDD mechanism (Reduction of emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries) over which an agreement must be reached in Copenhagen. REDD consists of paying developing countries to not exploit their forests.

    Deforestation in Tasmania : Gunns Ltd decides to stop logging old-growth forests | Gunns LTD

    Greg L’Estrange, the new CEO of Gunns Limited, one of the world's industrial giants, has decided to stop logging native forests in Tasmania as his company has been doing for several decades. For all the Australian environmental groups who have been campaigning against the destruction of the Tasmanian forest, it is an unprecedented decision : ""we now have a unique opportunity to resolve the Tasmania forest conflict"", rejoiced Phill Pullinger, the director of one organisation. His NGO, Environment Tasmania, as well as two others, the Wilderness Society and the Australian Conservation Foundation, have began talks with forest industry representatives so that the forest in Tasmania can be managed sustainably. A conflict that has been going on for dozens of years could thus be resolved. One of the techniques used involves burning native forests with napalm to replace them with industrial eucalyptus plantations as they grow fast and their trunks are well suited for machines.

    In an episode of Vu du Ciel, Yann Arthus-Bertrand met Bob Brown, a senator, doctor and environmental activist who has been fighting to protect the forest in Tasmania for twenty years.

    "The Billion Tree Campaign - Growing Green / The Plant for the Planet: Billion Tree Campaign is a worldwide tree planting initiative facilitated by the United Nations Environment Programme. People, communities, businesses, industry, civil society organizations and governments are encouraged to enter tree planting pledges on-line . The campaign strongly encourages the planting of indigenous trees and trees that are appropriate to the local environment.

    By the end of 2009, more than 7.4 billion trees had been planted under this campaign – far in excess of the year-end target of 7 billion – by participants in 170 countries. With this success continuing into 2010, the Billion Tree Campaign will make a substantial contribution to the 2010 International Year of Biodiversity, raising awareness of the importance of biodiversity for our well-being. Trees play a crucial role as fundamental components of the biodiversity that forms the foundation of the living networks and systems that provide us all with health, wealth, food, fuel and vital ecosystem services our lives depend on. They help provide breathable air, drinkable water, fertile soils and a stable climate. The billions of trees planted by the collective efforts of participants of the Billion Tree Campaign from all parts of society will contribute to biodiversity across the planet.
