Nature:our wealth

Natural ecosystems are vital in the fight against climate change and their restoration and conservation are urgently needed.

Healthy natural ecosystems improve biodiversity and resilience as well as reducing land degradation and desertification.

Furthermore, they provide multiple social and economic benefits.

Our mission

Our mission is to support and enhance the functions of natural ecosystems in the mitigation of and adaptation to climate change, thus improving biodiversity and reducing desertification and land degradation.

We promote catalytic actions for the restoration of ecosystems, including forests, wetlands and other natural ecosystems, thereby:

- Supporting the fight against climate change by removing CO2.

- Making a positive impact on biodiversity, soil and water by planting the right tree in the right place.

- Generating socio-economic opportunities in rural areas.
