Copperbelt: Forests on Farms
Zambia, Luanshya district, Copperbelt province started 2015 Active Restoration
In Zambia's Copperbelt, WeForest works with hundreds of small-scale farmers, providing them with training and tools to diversify their sources of income while they plant and protect local forests. As a result, they receive higher incomes, diversify their economic activities and learn new skills. The project also links them to local companies to ensure their honey gets sold. This way, the project becomes more sustainable, which makes the beneficiaries less dependent on WeForest's contribution.
