Tools that explain climate change and environmental degradation and help communities to protect and care for their environment and adapt to a changing climate

Trees can provide food, fuel and construction materials. They can protect water resources, soil quality, slope stability and biodiversity. They can support livelihoods and even help reduce the impacts of climate change. Despite these benefits, forests are being cut down at an alarming rate.

This tool will help you think about why, where and how you can grow trees. There are many approaches to this, and they depend on the intended purpose for the trees. The most helpful way for the community to decide on their approach is to think about the main reasons they want to grow trees.
