The Sheka Forest Story - Wisdom from the Past, Resilience for the Future
The Sheka Forest Story shows the power of collaboration.
The Sheka forest is one of Ethiopia's largest and last remaining tropical forests. Clan leaders, the local community and the local government have come together with the support of local partner, Melca Ethiopia, to help secure the future of the forest, its rich bio-cultural diversity and to enhance sustainable livelihood options.
The story tells an enchanting tale of the complexities of forest governance at a time when it has never been more critical.
"It takes everyone to protect a forest. It only takes a few to destroy it".
