who we are
The EverGreening Network for Forest and Land Restoration is a Not- for-profit organization with a strong passion to bring landscapes and ecosystems into restoration. As a member of the Global EverGreening Alliance our focus is to strengthen local action on restoration of forest landscapes, degraded lands and ecosystems across Nigeria and the African continent.
what we do
The Network provides a collaborative platform to support and facilitate massive-scale forest and land restoration with trees through sustainable land management practices such a Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration across ecosystems. This in turn increases biodiversity and supports mitigation and adaptation to the impacts of climate change. Our works leverages community knowledge and capacities by reaching out to local and State Governments, Community- Based Organizations, NGOs, research institutions and Universities at the national and sub-national levels.
