Form international is one of the initiators of the movement 'Forests for the Future, New Forests for Africa', which completed its first conference on African soil in the Ghanaian capital Accra on March 16 and 17, 2016.
SFI Tanzania established a forestry area of about 200 ha, planted with eucalyptus and teak in April and May 2016. Most of the trees were planted at Kwaraguru Estate, involving about 70 people for the planting. Next to the general forest stands, a species trial was planted with a mixture of different species and provenances.
Form international is founder and partner of the initiative ‘Forests for the Future – New Forests for Africa’. This initiative has been established with the aim to stimulate and drive large scale reforestation in Africa. The target to reach 100 million hectares of new forests, which African nations have set them themselves is of an exceptional size. To realize this, African leaders see the need for sustainable forestry projects based on a long-term approach and multi-stakeholder benefit. They particularly see the benefit to intensify the cooperation with the private sector as they have the resources, innovation and the ability to deliver.
