The method of desertification can consume whole villages, turning the residents into nomads, which in turn results in tensions and, at occasions, violent conflict. Couple of are aware that this environmental crisis is projected to have an effect on approximately one third of the earth’s land surface. Based on a recent article within the Yale Environment 360 publication, “Desertification claims a Nebraska-sized area of productive capacity every year globally.”

The tragic conflict in Darfur has resulted in deaths totaling hundreds of thousands whilst causing widespread devastation to the local region and the surrounding societies in the Republic of Sudan.

This is an approach that all corporations around the world should adopt. We can no longer separate the goal of profit from the goal of building a sustainable world. It truly is time that compassion, ethics, fairness, and respect become the hallmarks of a great corporation, not just beating the quarterly earnings estimate.”We are building replicable, community-based models to address desertification and severe environmental degradation through the community-led development of forest belts,http://www.febapelcouture.com/blog/nike-free-run-3-coral.html, sustainable agricultural lands, biofuel-powered irrigation systems, and sustainable nearby industries.”

Citizens of Sudan, the largest country on the African continent, have suffered for properly more than 50 years. The very first Sudanese Civil War (1955 to 1972) was followed by the Second Civil War (1983 to 2005). These days conflict rages inside the western region of Darfur,Nike Free 3.0 V2 Anti-Fur Womens Dark Blue White Running Shoes, a section of Sudan about the size of France.”It is no accident that the violence in Darfur erupted during the drought.” United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

A few years ago a dear friend gave me a copy of Walden by Henry David Thoreau. If you’ve ever read it, you know it to be a seminal function on the simplicity and beauty of life and nature, and after a lot more that 150 years its importance is renewed by our current environmental situation.

I located this quote from Walden inside the Christie Communications’ newsletter, and it exemplified one of the ideals of Global Patriot, that we have the ability to achieve unexpected achievement in our lifetime.”I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet having a sense of achievement unexpected in common hours.” – Henry David Thoreau, Walden

I was impressed to learn that Christie Communications had partnered with Aid Still Required to launch the initiative. This international relief organization has served the needs of humanitarian efforts from Hurricane Katrina, to the Asian Tsunami along with the current situation plaguing Darfur. Using the donation facilities of Dedicated to Make the Difference Network, you can still make a personal contribution to the planting of trees. You can also watch the Aid Still Required video with Kobe Bryant.

Rather than a top down approach, whereby outside organizations come in and control the entire operation, this project is managed by a nearby community-based organization. Approximately 5.8% in the budget will be provided by the local community through a fund-sharing strategy.

The idea would be to plant a series of forest belts which will protect the soil from the fierce desert winds. Roughly 30,000 trees, comprised of five species, will occupy an 8 square kilometer location. This approach also results in lowering temperatures within the surrounding location.

Dr. C. Jean Weidemann, President in the Weidemann Foundation, is the project advisor. She is known worldwide as a microlending specialist and is the author of much more than 40 books and publications, including the recent United Nations Development Programme guidebook, Supporting Women’s Livelihoods: Microfinance that Works for the Majority. Among the Weidemann Foundation’s projects are school lunch programs for underserved children in Dakar, Senegal; co-sponsorship in the UCSB Capps Center lecture on microlending in Haiti; funding for Direct Relief International which trains Rwandan women genocide survivors, and support of Tibetan nuns in India.

The overriding benefit is that The Village Reforestation and Restoration Initiative represents much more than just a solution to 1 particular problem; this type of plan is designed to be holistic in nature, inclusive of the community, respectful of the environment, viable for the long term, and replicable throughout Afric
