Climate resilient species have been selected in collaboration with local communities and forestry specialists to address societal challenges while providing human well-being and biodiversity benefits.
Planting and fencing activities happened in 2021 and agro-ecological maintenance is continuously operated by farmers to ensure the restoration process.
Driven by local communities
Agroforestry activities and climate-resilient practices are implemented by youth and women, fostering socio-economic opportunities while strengthening environmental and climate leadership, raising awareness, and mobilizing in favour of climate governance at all levels.
The proposed monitoring and traceable payments systems ensure that the donors’ investment reaches the community.
With a transparent and scalable system
By setting up a fully automated and traceable payment system, through the blockchain technology, replicating this initiative across drylands just became easier, inspiring future investments and giving visibility to local stakeholders.
Communities, governments, companies, NGOs, and donors collaborate to intelligently build scalable systems towards a climate-resilient world.
Employment for economic and ecosystems recovery
JeSAC has created an innovative segment of the labour market, supporting rural livelihoods towards a sustainable economic growth, which values natural resources.
JeSAC allows the training and employment of gender balanced local communities in Burkina Faso and Niger, through the participation in a climate resilient agroforestry.
And skillful and consistent monitoring of trees
Billions of trees, planted thanks to initiatives such as the Great Green Wall, are currently not accurately monitored with conventional satellite technology. However,they are essential for maintaining biodiversity and adapting to extreme climate events, such as droughts on top of sequestering CO2.
JESAC proposes to circumvent inherent existing limitations by linking very high resolution satellite imagery to trees monitoring, while remotely measuring environmental variables (e.g. soil moisture, precipitation, temperature) assessing the ecological status of restored areas.
