This project is evaluating the practices employed in an ex-closure area in Tigray; participatory forest management in Oromiya; smallholder plantations in Amhara; agroforestry in the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region (SNNPRS); and the management of dry forests and woodlands in Benishangul Gumuz.

The impacts of these practices on local livelihoods and conservation (for example, carbon sequestration) is being assessed, and opportunities for, and constraints on scaling up effective practices are being analyzed.

This project is also assessing the advantages and disadvantages of engaging smallholders in carbon credit schemes at the household, village, watershed and kebelle levels. 

Five teams and a network of forestry institutions have been established, and the project
will equip policy-makers and practitioners with strategic knowledge, comparable evidence, reliable tools and systematic analysis related to forests and green growth.
