Determinantes of Health: Healthy Environment
The deforestation rate in Africa is four times the world's average.
To help combat this, CPAR works with community members to establish community-based tree nurseries and provide seedlings that rejuvenate farmlands and village soils. We train farmers on new irrigation techniques that reduce run off and soil erosion while raising awareness about environmental degradation through our Conservation Agriculture program.
CPAR also introduces energy-saving stove technology to households and biogas technologies to further reduce fuel wood consumption and save trees.
When you support CPAR’s Healthy Environment program, you’re helping African communities create healthy natural surroundings that allow families and future generations to grow and prosper.
