The Ethiopian government has encouraged every citizen to plant at least 40 seedlings to fight deforestation.

„Trees not only help mitigate climate change by absorbing the carbon dioxide in the air, but they also have huge benefits in combating desertification and land degradation, particularly in arid countries. They also provide food, shelter, fuel, fodder, medicine, materials and protection of the water supply.“
