REAL PEOPLE, REAL PARTNERSHIPS
The Plan Vivo-certified 'Trees of Hope' project aims to improve the livelihoods of rural farmers in the Dowa and Neno districts of Malawi.
The community-led implementation of tree-based land use systems reduce vulnerability to climate change and threats to local ecosystems.
Rural and forest-dependent communities are on the frontline of climate change, yet they are often the stewards of the planet's most productive ecosystems.
Just one of the thousands of people-to-people partnerships between Scotland and Malawi, working across all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
