This will contribute towards Ethiopia’s National Green Growth initiative. The initiative, which has been backed by Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, aims to reach national green environmental goals and combat the effects of changing climates and deforestation in the region. The government has set an annual target to plant five billion indigenous tree seedlings..
