We are pleased to present to customers and partners a film illustrating our climate protection project Sodo Community Managed Reforestation in Ethiopia. The short film features impressions and background information on the project area and its people. World Vision Ethiopia staff members have documented various project activities while being on a monitoring mission in the area. The film highlights among other aspects community members’ daily work. It adds key figures, facts and quotes.
“In managing our climate change mitigation projects, we put a special focus on transparency and close collaboration with the project developer. By working closely with Word Vision, also on a technical level, we are provided with special insights into the project’s work on the ground. We are happy to share those features with our partners”, says Julian Ekelhof, Director CO2OL Climate Solutions, describing motivations for realizing the film.
The Sodo project aims at conserving a degraded forest landscape at the slopes of Mount Damota, and at planting new trees and thereby adding to a long-term regeneration of the forest ecosystem in that area. Besides making a contribution to stabilise our climate, the project helps safeguarding biodiversity and stimulating regional development. It is independently certified by Gold Standard, an international certification body for high-quality climate change mitigation projects.
