project in support of CCD
ECO to outscale its madagascar approach for sustainable woodfuel
ECO Consult is exploring ways to extend its approach of optimising
wood energy value chains as practised in Madagascar, to other regions.
The approach, which includes pacemaking innovative concepts such
as village-based individual afforestation (reboisement villageois
individuel), will be tested for adaptation and inclusion into
policies in Ethiopia, Burundi, Côte d'Ivoire and Togo. It
provides for a national reserve of 'energy forests', their sustainable
management, and a decentral reliable provision of household energy.
ECO was entrusted with the task by a Deutsche Gesellschaft für
Internationale Zusammenarbeit sector project that supports implementation
of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification.
