Farming for Biodiversity

Apis Agribusiness

Entry Overview

Currently, the remaining forest in Ethiopia is found in South Western part where our project is working. It is in a big risk of deforestation since there is big rural youth unemployment and problem of linking forest conservation to economic benefit of the society living in the forest. Beekeeping can be used as a development tool, which can contribute to ecological, economic and nutritional development efforts. We apply for this call expecting our intervention has the same idea and goal with this “Solution search farming biodiversity” initiative. Our strategy is working with rural unemployed youth in systematic organic honey production and linking to forest conservation. Forest conservation without incentive to the society living in and around the forest is impossible. We have a slogan for sustainability of the intervention “No tree, No bee, No honey, No money”.
