Himalayan forest


What does the project do?

Trees are planted to restore the Great Himalayan Forest. Women are playing an important role in Forest User Groups, improved forest management reduces grazing pressure from livestock. Firebreaks and clearing undergrowth are being used. Drought and flooding risks are reduced, and biodiversity is protected. The most vulnerable community members are receiving support to strengthen their livelihoods.

What happens without it?

Severe deforestation in this mountainous region has lead to deadly floods in the region and also downstream on the plains of India and Bangladesh. Without greater control over local forests by local villages, and payments for ecosystem services, the most vulnerable members of the community will remain in extreme poverty and deforestation will continue.

What are you funding?
