Deforestation in Ethiopia

The problem

Over 95% of the forests in ethiopia are being cut down. Without trees, even more erosion occurs and gets rid of more trees.

Cause and Effect of Deforestation in Ethiopia

Many people in Ethiopia and around africa use the "Slash and Burn" form of agriculture for their crops. Unfortunately, this destroys the land.


My solution to this problem would be simple. I would plant as many trees possible in the areas they would grow to try to boost the growth of forests. I would also talk to the government to confront the problem. To fund this I would walk around cities and inform people of the problem and collect money.
