Regreening degraded land with Evergreen Agricultural practices

To address Land Degradation, the European Commission with additional financial contributions from its participating implementing agencies is introducing the Reversing Land Degradation in Africa by Scaling-up Evergreen Agriculture (EVA) Project, a five year initiative from 2017 to 2022 Coordinated by the World Agroforestry Centre.

The project in Ghana has the goal of contributing to reversing land degradation and encouraging the practice of Evergreen Agriculture among 40,000 households to cover approximately 80,000 hectare of land.

This Project will build on the proven years of experiences gained from similar projects such as the Famer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) project in the Talensi District by World Vision.

The project is being implemented in Ghana by World Vision International, Ghana and Catholic Relief Services, Ghana in the Bawku West, Garu and Mion districts funded by the European Union.
