Desertification is spreading – time to tackle a real threat to world populations?

Operation OASIS is a reforestation project supported by the FREdome Visionary Trust. We have the technology and the resources to initiate large scale reforestation starting in the coastal regions of Africa. This is is an idea of a British inventor and naturalist Andrew K Fletcher.
