Conserving plants and local livelihoods

 

Since April 2013, GDF has been actively working with The High Atlas Foundation to establish fruit tree and medicinal plant nurseries in two rural townships of the High Atlas Mountains - Ait M’Hamed in Azilal province and Imegdale in El Haouz Province. With funding from the Darwin Initiative and the Critical Ecosystems Partnership Fund, our goal is to enhance local livelihoods and contribute to plant conservation.
