Our latest update sets out how we are responding to the current crisis, and potential impacts on our work.
Fortunately for now the impact on current planting and restoration activities is minimal since we are not yet in the key planting season. June is the key month for these activities to begin in Ethiopia and we will be monitoring the situation closely. Our projects in Malawi and Brazil (Atlantic Forest) have planting activities that do not begin until later in the year when we hope the situation will have improved so that the activities can go ahead as planned. Nevertheless, the lockdown in the State of Amazonas affects the extensive consultation with local farmers in one of our newest projects and will reduce the scale of our 2020 objectives there. The closure of schools in Malawi and Tanzania means we have postponed our awareness-raising activities and closure of publics markets in Ethiopia will also delay some of the forest-friendly livelihood activities that rely on the purchase of small livestock (such as sheep and poultry).
