@Marrakech, today’s focus is Forest & Land and Water #COP22
Very proud of Morocco with “The Forest’s Voice” initiatives.
On November 12, smack in the middle of #COP22, thousands of Moroccan volunteers will plant more than 1.2 million trees in one day. 3,000 hectares in 12 regions have been identified for reforestation. Several local species of trees including Atlas cedar, eucalyptus, Alep pine and acacia will be planted.
Morocco to plant more than 1 million trees in one day!
The tree planting operation called “The Forest’s Voice” kicks off the 2016 national reforestation campaign lead by the High Commission on Water and Forests and Against Desertification, which will see more than 40 million forest plants across a surface area of more than 45,000 hectares.
According to the FAO, Morocco lost roughly 1% of forest cover between 1990 and 2000 and gained 2% between 2000 and 2010. That represents a positive balance of 300,000 hectares.
