The project objective is to preserve 200,000 ha of cloud forest in Kafa, the region of southwestern Ethiopia where coffee originated. Up to two million tons of CO2 emissions will be prevented over the course of the project term through reforestation, establishment of the first Ethiopian biosphere reserve, and introduction of management methods that conserve forest resources. Tried and proven processes of participatory management will be used to integrate climate protection and climate adaptation measures.
