This collection of tree planting projects is restoring lands that have been significantly degraded due to desertification in the rocky karst mountain region of Guizhou province in southwest China.

Project highlights

  • More than 25,000 farmers were employed, received training and benefitted from improved livelihood and revenue.
  • 60% of the farmers employed and trained are women.
  • Increasing biodiversity and resettlement of wildlife to a former rocky karst region
  • Without the project the soil erosion would continue due to intense farming practices

About

The Anhuang Afforestation Project is located in Guizhou Province, China. The project area is part of the Yunnan-Guizhou plateau which has been unsustainably managed for many years. The limestone rock environment (Karst rocks) of the project area is perfectly suitable for afforestation. Planting indigenous trees like fir, cypress and pine will create new forests and improve the environment.

The villagers own the land and village committees are responsible for sustainable forest management. Commercial logging is prohibited and human interference in the area is minimised. As a result, the forests contribute to improving biodiversity, there is less soil erosion and water retention is improved. This results in a large green cover of the area by biomass.

Because the project area is collectively owned by the local communities, the villagers share the income generated by the project. Carbon financing is essential for the sustainable transformation of the area. The project creates employment for the communities, the majority of which are women. Training is provided on the impact and avoidance of CO2 emissions and carbon sequestration. Plant cultivation, sustainable forest management and forest ecosystems are also on the training programme. Crop yields increase due to improved soil conditions. Not only nature benefits from the project, but also the local population.
