Tanzania has one of the world’s highest rates of deforestation. But in a country where agriculture is the backbone and smallholder farms are the majority, avoiding deforestation is crucial for alleviating poverty. EfD is working to create change by increasing awareness of the value of preserving natural resources, for long term, sustainable food security.
