Nobel Laureate: Plant Trees on Farms to Fight Climate Change

Date : 31st August 2009, Source : ENS



NAIROBI, Kenya, August 31, 2009 - Tree planting can help the African continent cope with climate change and also provide a long-term solution to the continent's food scarcity problems, experts told the World Agroforestry Congress last week in Nairobi. More than 1,200 global experts gathered to consider growing trees on farms for humanity's survival. Delegates heard an urgent message from founder of the Greenbelt Movement and 2004 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai, who emphasized the importance of planting trees to help Africa adapt to the extreme weather conditions brought by climate change.
