OASIS PROJECT: 2011 designated UN Year of Forests

March 16, 2011

The UN Environmental Programme (UNEP) recently published a ground-breaking report which puts Forests at the top of the agenda for Green Growth:

The report recommends:   

  •  Forests generate goods and services, which support the economic livelihoods of over one billion people, recycle nutrients vital for agriculture and harbour 80 per cent of landbased species.
  • Deforestation also currently accounts for close to 20 per cent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Reducing deforestation can therefore be a good investment: the climate regulation benefits of halving global deforestation alone have been estimated to exceed costs by a factor of three,”

The report suggests

A transition to a Green Economy could increase forested land—currently close to 4 billion hectares—by over three per cent in 2020, eight per cent by 2030 and over 20 per cent by 2050, relative to business as usual.

Our OASIS Solution project aims to kick-start afforestation of desert areas – starting at the coast and working inwards.

Our solution has potential to answer all UNEP’s concerns and could contribute massively to these growth targets.
