Ethiopian Business Review

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD) launched a nation-wide initiative to plant four billion trees across the country this summer. Following his footsteps, other government officials, diplomats, opposition leaders and head of states and governments visiting Addis Ababa are also planting trees. The initiative is set to mobilize national reforestation in which citizens are expected to plant 40 trees per head.

Ethiopia has been working to make planting trees a national culture. Every year in the rainy summer, billions of seedlings are planted by mobilizing the public, contributing to the status the country achieved as one of the top ten countries in reforestation worldwide. However, the same cannot be said of efforts of taking care of the seedlings planted through campaigns.
