Our objective of Regreening Somalia is to scale-up evergreen agriculture, using locally appropriate techniques including Farmer-Managed Natural Regeneration, tree planting, and other forms of agroforestry and complementary sustainable land management interventions.
Our people are dependent on the land for their livelihoods yet two-thirds of the land is highly degraded, threatening the livelihoods and the food and nutrition security of the poorest, most vulnerable farmers and pastoralists.
Tackling this challenge demands an ambitious but proven and effective approach: incorporating trees into cropland, communal land, and pastoral areas will speed up the reclamation of Somalia’s degraded landscapes. Agroforestry has already been successfully deployed to reverse land degradation in specific places in Somalia. The challenge now is to scale-up relevant practices across the country.
