project in support of CCD
ECO to outscale its madagascar approach for sustainable woodfuel
ECO Consult is exploring ways to extend its approach of optimising
wood energy value chains as practised in Madagascar, to other regions.
The approach, which includes pacemaking innovative concepts such
as "reboisement villageois individuel", will be tested
for adaptation and inclusion into policies in Ethiopia, Burundi,
Côte d'Ivoire and Togo. It provides for a national reserve
of 'energy forests', their sustainable management, and a decentral
reliable provision of household energy. ECO was entrusted with the
task by a Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit
sector project that supports implementation of the United Nations
Convention to Combat Desertification.
