to learn about One Tree Planted's work.
From 2001 to 2017, Tanzania lost 2.19 million hectares of tree cover, equivalent to a 8.3% decrease since 2000. Loss of tree cover on East African mountains has been linked to lower rainfall patterns and increased temperatures. Wildfires are occurring more frequently on the mountain, accelerating the destruction of forests. Because there are now fewer trees to trap water from clouds, the annual amount of dew on the mountain is believed to have fallen by 25 per cent.
Most of the population in these mountainous areas live and work on small farms. They will be hit first, and hardest, by the effects of climate disasters such as floods and wildfires. By working together with these communities, this project seeks to empower local people with education, tools, and economic incentives to make positive change, protect their future and save the unique mountain ecosystems in the region.
