Reforestation and forest restoration as means of combating desertification, climate change, and pollution are now high on the agenda of the Lebanese government, especially in the wake of the 40 Million Tree Campaign and the COP21 in Paris.
Close cooperation between government and non-government organizations, private sector and environmentally- engaged individuals is needed to meet this challenge.
As private entities and Lebanese citizens around the world are key enablers of reforestation, LRI is launching the ReforestAction initiative. ReforestAction makes it possible for you to support the birth or restoration of a forest in LRI-supported biocorridors or an area of your choice, while supporting improved livelihoods for rural communities.
Forests provide a large number of valuable environmental services, including air filtration and pollution control, Carbon storage, water purification, water and soil protection against natural disasters, additional income to rural communities through direct and indirect benefits, recreation and wellbeing and many others.
ReforestAction enables you to:
Restore the environment of the area you choose, and thus create positive environmental impact. This will translate into:
In addition, we will support you in gaining visibility thanks to social and local media coverage and our communication follow through.
