What Is The Grasslands Problem?
Grasslands are vast areas in nature covered by grass and other plantation. Not only do they nurture a vast amount of plant and animal life, but they cover about a fourth of the Earth’s face, and are an absolutely irreplaceable part of our ecosystem and life.
Grasslands are currently under strong threat by a number of factors, including the reaching development of urban area, over-grazing livestock, and poor agricultural practices. By declaring Grasslands as project zones, we prevent cities from cutting into them while allowing shepherds and their livestock graze certain areas in a way that harms nature as little as possible.
Benefits from expanding Grasslands include:
- Reduce Carbon Emission.
- Absorption of toxic substances
- Increased oxygen for the entire globe
- Natural water filtration system
- Climate change mitigation
“Climate change is the single greatest threat to a sustainable future but, at the same time, addressing the climate challenge presents a golden opportunity to promote prosperity, security and a brighter future for all.”Ban Ki-Moon, Former Secretary-General of UN
We are planning to restore grasslands in a wide variety of areas, attempting to ensure a better future while working hand-in-hand with communities to improve their lives as well.
Seeding and setting reserves are integral parts in the process of creating new Grasslands or nurturing old, degraded ones, as well as ensuring that communities have the necessary equipment and knowledge to maintain their new project.
