The Bolivian Andes are characterized by a rugged landscape with mountains well over 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) high. Unfortunately, large sections of the Andes mountain range have been deforested for firewood, small-scale cattle-farming and extension of agriculture. Shortage of trees and non-sustainable use of land lead to enormous water deficits in the area. Droughts cause crop failures and these, in turn, lead to endangering the livelihood of the inhabitants.
Together with the local population and Trees for All partner Samay Foundation, we will return the green to the Bolivian highlands. We are planting 99,000 trees on 45 hectares of eroded land. Our target? Improving the living conditions of the communities and making a positive impact on the climate!
