Uganda Trees First in Africa to Count as CO2 Emissions Reductions

Date : 6th October 2009, Source : ENS



KAMPALA, Uganda, October 6, 2009 (ENS) Pines and a mix of native African trees will soon cover what is now grassland within Uganda's Rwoho Central Forest Reserve, an upper watershed of Lake Victoria. The growing trees will absorb the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, CO2, from the atmosphere, and with these plantings, Uganda becomes the first country in Africa to undertake a reforestation project that will count towards emissions reductions under the Kyoto Protocol.
