Executive Summary K/bayah Woreda is one of the largest producers and consumers of charcoal and fire woods in the Somali Regional State. Such high demand for charcoal and firewood resulted in deforestation, soil erosion and disappearance of important indigenous tree. Moreover, severe forest decimation in the area affected the hydrological system and the ecosystem as a whole. The aim of this project is, therefore, to combat forest and land degradation induced by charcoal production and firewood collection in K/Bayah Woreda of Somali Regional State. This project will be implemented by Somali Regional Environmental Protection and Forestry, Mines and Energy Development Agency (SREPFMEDA). The following major activities will be conducted to achieve the aforementioned project aim: (i) afforestation/reforestation of degraded lands, (ii) construction of five physical soil and water conservation structures (iii) production and dissemination of 1500 fuel-efficient stoves, (iv) establishment of community-based organization (CBO).The total cost of the project is USD 91,269.50.
