Landscape Restoration

Bringing back the marshes, pastureland, and forests of the Azawak

We are pleased to announce that Amman Imman has been chosen as a Top Innovator in a cohort for Trillion Trees Challenge for the Sahel, sponsored by the World Economic Forum and 1t.org, the Trillion Tree Platform. We are featured on Uplink, the open innovation platform of the World Economic Forum.

Our project calls for "Landscape Restoration for Ecosystem Recovery (LRER)", aiming to restore watersheds, rebuild pasturelands and promote agroforestry in the drought-ridden Azawak region. By restoring these habitats, we plan to recreate the environmental landscape that existed for thousands of years, and has recently been thwarted by climate change.

An Innovative Solution

Wetlands, forests, and pastures in Niger play a significant role in the preservation of biodiversity, reducing gender inequality, promoting resilience and economic opportunity.

They specifically mitigate the effects of climate change by acting as carbon-stores and micro-climates promoting rainfall.
