Trees 4 Livelihoods (T4L) supports rural communities in Mali to embed regenerative land management techniques.
Working in a dryland environment experiencing increasing climatic shocks, T4L is successfully demonstrating a way to work with nature that is beneficial to both communities and ecosystems.
Using low-input techniques such as Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration, crop yields and biodiversity have improved hand-in-hand.
T4L also supports women to improve livelihoods based around indigenous trees like Henna and Baobab. Income gained from selling soaps, syrups and jams acts as an added incentive to conserve and restore tree cover.
T4L is run by Sahel Eco and International Tree Foundation.
