Trees take on climate change

Will you be a forestkeeper? Donate today to support the protection of important forests across Africa.

It’s official! The latest Special Report on Climate Change and Land, released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), confirms that tropical forests play an important role in tackling climate change.

As well as storing carbon, the trees in these forests help regulate the local climate – shading the ground and transpiring water. They are also home to thousands of wildlife species, and support local communities by providing food and sustainably sourced income or fuel.

A Rocha’s African Forests Programme protects 50,000 ha of biodiversity-rich tropical forests across Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria and Ghana:

Around the world, governments and scientists have declared that we are in a state of climate emergency. There will be no quick fix. But A Rocha’s forest conservation projects are investing in communities and landscapes where we can make a difference.

Will you join us? This Lent, please help us raise £10,000 to support the protection of these crucial tropical forests – a source of hope in a climate-anxious world.
