How Local Data is Accelerating Land Restoration in Ethiopia (World Resources Institute)

Tesfay WoldemariamMary Gronkiewicz and Will Anderson

In the 1980s, Ethiopia’s Tigray region experienced famine and drought that affected millions of people. In the early 1990s, local community leaders and farmers became resolute; they would need to grow more food. To do that, they needed to trap more water in the soil. This led them on a mission to restore millions of hectares of degraded and overgrazed lands to drastically reduce the possibility of future famines.
